H2020 MSCA Innovative Training Network for the research on Advanced Hardware/Software Components for Integrated/Embedded Vision Systems


The Image Processing and Interpretation (IPI) group, part of the Department of Telecommunications and Information Processing at Ghent University, has over 20 years of experience in image and video processing and analysis and has participated in and/or led multiple projects on computer vision for multi-camera people and vehicle tracking and behaviour analysis. For example, in the VICATS project, we developed techniques for multi-camera identification and tracking of trucks transporting hazardous goods through tunnels. In the Little Sister project, we analysed people’s motion patterns to extract health parameters using networks of low resolution cameras with embedded processing. IPI has developed a programming language “Quasar” and an IDE “Red-shift” to facilitate rapid prototyping of complex real-time video processing algorithms. IPI co-organises the yearly international Advanced Conference for Intelligent Vision Systems (ACIVS).
