The studies in this laboratory focus on computer vision and media processing including basic technologies such as sensor design, and applications such as an intelligent system with visual processing functions. Some of our major research projects are development of a novel vision sensor such as an omnidirectional mirror, biomedical image processing such as an endoscope and microscope images, person authentication, intension, and emotion estimation from human gait, and its applications to forensic and medical fields, photometry analysis and its application to computer graphics, an anticrime system using a wearable camera, 3D shape and human measurement using infrared light.
