More cyber security for intelligent cameras

An interview with Subhan Ullah by Romy Müller To simplify our daily routines, devices designed for the “Internet of Things (IoT)” are usually equipped with cameras that can record images and videos, and transmit these to other devices. Subhan Ullah’s research focuses on increasing the security of these systems, which […]

Self-calibration of visual sensor networks

Many multi-camera applications rely on the knowledge of the spatial relationship among the individual nodes. However, establishing such a network-wide calibration is typically a time-consuming task and requires user interaction. In her recent work, Jennifer Simonjan developed a decentralized and resource-aware algorithm for estimating the poses of all camera nodes […]

A bachelor thesis evolved into a startup company

What has started as a bachelor thesis on camera networks has evolved into a startup company with a staff of five people. Bernhard Rinner In 2014 Michael Gruber started his bachelor thesis at the Pervasive Computing group by investigating different software tools for simulating distributed algorithms in multi-camera networks. Together […]

UAV motion planning for multi-coverage

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with onboard cameras are increasingly deployed in various applications including surveying, search and rescue, inspection as well as video production. In all these applications, the UAVs move – in many cases autonomously – to capture imagery of sufficient quality of the environment or objects of interest.  […]
