Dynamic Vision Lab

The DVL studies visual and 3-D perception for mobile robots, particularly methods for robust, real-time tracking, detection, and segmentation in semi-structured outdoor environments.

We are part of the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Delaware

Trail following

We developed a system which detects and tracks rough paths despite widely varying tread material, border vegetation, and illumination conditions through a combination of appearance and structural cues

Semantic sports analysis

We are investigating deep learning approaches to soccer event detection, as well as individual and ensemble action recognition techniques, toward automatic refereeing and summary generation systems

DARPA robotics challenge

We designed a multi-sensor head for a HUBO humanoid robot and programmed it to drive a utility vehicle, carry a hose, and other tasks

Animal detection

We are investigating visual object detectors based on deep neural networks that can quickly and accurately find natural objects such as bird nests and scallops in cluttered scenes from moving robotic platforms
