A Bioimage Informatics QVEST: Quick, Versatile and Easy Segmentation & Tracking System

Carl Nelson Often bioimage informatics solutions are developed on a case-by-case system and, once complete, little research goes into developing the systems for a wide spread of applications. Here we demonstrate how a single image analysis technique can be used to segment objects in different 3D microscopy images including tracking through time series, segmenting complex…

Next Generation Intelligent Sensing

Mikolaj Kundegorski The school’s image processing team have been awarded a research contract to work with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) in developing an intelligent modular sensing system for surveillance and the protection of high-value assets. In the context of both defence and civil environments there is a need to protect high-value landbased…

Virtual Environment Platforms for Socio-Educational Domains

Mohammed Farsi The development of Virtual Environment (VE) platforms has significantly impacted socio-educational domains. With the advent of new technology such as the Wii and Xbox 360 Kinect, this not only relates to the learning environment but also to the actual Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), whereby users can now experience full-body interaction without the use of external…
