Projects per year
I am Professor of Computer Vision at the University of Bristol based in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Visual Information Laboratory (VIL) and the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL). My research covers computer vision and its applications - robotics, wearable computing and augmented reality - and I have done a lot of work on 3-D tracking and scene reconstruction, mainly in simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM). Working with industry and on interdisciplinary projects is always a high priority for me - please get in touch if you are interested in working with me.
My expertise is in computer vision; extracting information from images and video to allow autonomous systems to gain an understanding of the world. I have over 25 years of research experience in this area, covering topics ranging from feature extraction and disparity estimation for stereo vision through to 3-D tracking and vision based simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM). The latter has been the focus of my work for the past 10 years, involving the development of early real-time monocular SLAM systems with particular emphasis on robust operation and relocalisation capability. More recently I have worked on 3-D tracking and reconstruction using RGB-D sensors and image based place recognition and navigation.
