Project:  Intelligent Computer Vision and Parallel Processing
Disciplines:  Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Applied Math
Mentor:  Thomas Lu, (JPL),, Phone: (818) 354-9513
Background:  The Intelligent Sensor Processing Object Recognition & Tracking Systems (iSports) Lab in Bio-Inspired Technologies & Systems Group (349B) is conducting testing and optimization of the automatic object recognition for Deep Learning, GPU based parallel processing and IR image processing. The research is directly applicable to autonomous guidance of spacecraft landing/docking/rendezvous and hazardous avoidance.
Description:  We are interested in sponsoring 2 - 4 intern students for the Computer Vision and IR image analysis projects. The candidates will help to train intelligent computer programs to automatically detect, recognize, and track objects from CCD/CMOS imaging cameras. The autonomous target recognition (ATR) system helps the robots and autonomous vehicles to understand the environment, and perform autonomous maneuvers.
