Networked cameras create remote classrooms

Networked cameras create remote classrooms
A new instructional Video Network Lab at Bourns College of Engineering has five networked cameras that can be accessed and controlled remotely via the internet. Students now have the ability to manipulate camera angles and capture scenes for experiments in image enhancement, modeling and recognition from their home computers. This system will provide practical experience in video surveillance, pattern recognition, and medical monitoring; such networked systems are used widely in industry. Students enrolled in Advanced Digital Image Processing and Computer Visualization courses learn to filter, enhance and process the images, similar to techniques used to extract information from pictures sent to Earth from the Mars Rover. The courses are being taught by Electrical Engineering Assistant Professor Amit Roy Chowdhury. He and Associate Development Engineer Dan Giles designed the lab.
