The Vision and Image Processing (VIP) lab consists of three faculty members in Systems Design Engineering and their graduate students. It was formed in 1980 by Professor Ed Jernigan and his students at the time, growing out of a series of weekly meetings spent discussing research topics of the day, specifically vision models, perception, image and signal processing, and pattern recognition.
The VIP lab is dedicated to understanding visual processes and finding solutions for the outstanding problems in image and video processing. For specific examples of our work, see Research Topics and Demos.
With three faculty members and over twenty graduate students at any given time, the VIP lab carries on a wide variety of research projects. VIP lab members have on-going collaborations with researchers and companies across many disciplines. For more information, see Colleagues and Industry.
