Welcome to the Graphics and Vision Research Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Otago. The laboratory was formed in 1986, and today consists of 3 academic staff and several postgraduate students, as well as the occasional visitor.
Our research is varied, but most of it falls somewhere in the broad fields of computer graphics, vision, and image processing. Mostly we're doing stuff that is interesting and fun, since we believe that makes the lab an interesting and fun place to be. You can find out more technical details from our publications.
We have two students working in the lab over summer. Joshua La Pine will be continuing the work he started with Ashley and Shahne in his COSC490 project making a collbaorative AR jigsaw puzzle, and Joseph Cahill-Lane is tracking bristlebots for playing robot football.
The Graphics Lab recently welcomed a new PhD student, Tapabrata Chakraborti. Tapabrata joins us from Jadavpur University, India, and will be investigating fine-grained recognition with Brendan and Steve.
The International Conference on 3D Vision was held in Lyon from the 8th to 11th of December. Steven presented his paper "Accelerated Relative Camera Pose from Oriented Features".
