Ubiquitous Machine Vision

Ubiquitous Machine Vision with Adaptive Wireless Networking and Edge Computing
Electrical and Computer Engineering

ECE researchers Dr. Tao Han and Dr. Chen Chen received funding from the NSF to realize ubiquitous machine vision (UbiVision) and enable efficient utilization of networked cameras for information extraction and sharing. To research this goal, the PIs are using techniques and perspectives from wireless networking, computer vision, and edge computing to solve fundamental research problems in the ubiquitous camera system. The project proposes to design and develop new methods to dynamically manage highly coupled resources and functions across multiple technology domains, i.e., camera functions, network resources, and computation resources, and enable efficient and reliable machine vision analysis over resource-constrained over wireless edge computing networks. This project fosters interdisciplinary research, provides a unique training program to undergraduate and graduate students, and has a high potential to introduce transformative technologies that enable new real-life products and services.
