Computer Vision Technologies R&D
The science and technology of systems that see and understand—computer vision—offers solutions to data acquisition and exploitation challenges in defense, security, robotics, training, and the medical marketplace. Cameras and sensors have become ubiquitous: extracting meaningful information from acquired images in real time and in real world applications requires the right set of tools.
End-to-end vision capabilities include enhanced sensing, front-end video processing, and high-level analysis. An important application area is event detection and recognition to identify and extract highlights from long-form video, and to label events throughout a video so they are searchable (e.g., at what point did the candles get blown out in a birthday video?).
To meet rigorous client requirements, SRI develops, evaluates, and transitions computer vision technologies in these areas:
Event detection and recognition
Video archiving and retrieval
Video text recognition/extraction
DARPA taps SRI to deliver usable video and analytics to U.S. Armed Forces when and where they need it.
SRI’s vision-based systems enable safe operations of moving unmanned ground vehicles around stationary and moving people in urban or cluttered environments.
SRI’s visual intelligence system could enable a new era in unmanned robotic surveillance.
SRI is developing a prototype system to automatically detect and track multiple individuals in a crowd.
