Expanded Research Focus for ODU Vision Lab Comes into View

For more than a decade, the Machine Vision and Computational Intelligence Laboratory (Vision Lab) has conducted complex, groundbreaking vision and video research.

Founded following a three-year project to develop a computer-based, facial image detection and recognition system, the Vision Lab has expanded its reach into a range of defense and homeland security, medical image analysis, intelligent transportation applications, receiving many grants from the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, National Institutes of Health and NASA. In 2012, the lab received about $500,000.

Under the direction of Khan Iftekharuddin, a professor of electrical and computer engineering who came to ODU in 2011, the Vision Lab is also expanding its view.

"Our national security research projects are still a very important part of what we do," Iftekharuddin said. "But there are so many real-world applications of machine vision technology, it's exciting to think of the possibilities."
