Professor Amit Roy-Chowdhury receives ONR grant
Amit K. Roy-Chowdhury has received a grant from the Office of Naval Research titled "A Testbed for Robust Multimodal Sensor Networks". Bir Bhanu is a Co-PI on this grant. This will enable research and education efforts in multimodal sensor networks that will complement existing work on large video networks. The major equipment items include hyperspectral sensor, radar flashlight, omni-directional cameras, near- and mid-wave infra-red cameras, high definition video camera and recorder, and computing and data storage facilities. The equipment will contribute to the development of the science of automatic object recognition in a network of multimodal sensors. It will enable research in image understanding as it moves towards more complex problems involving large numbers of heterogeneous sensors, varying time windows and environmental conditions, and groups of interacting objects. It will also be a valuable addition to courses in automated image analysis by providing students with first-hand experience with state-of-the-art equipment.
