The Pattern Recognition and Image Processing Laboratory is a component of the Research Center in Computer Science (certified by CNCSIS) at the “Ştefan cel Mare” University of Suceava with research activities being conducted on general pattern recognition and image processing techniques, gesture recognition and human-computer interaction, distributed intelligence and vision-guided robotics.
Gesture-based interaction: head and hand gesture detection and recognition
The Pattern Recognition and Image Processing Lab aims to perform high quality research in pattern recognition, image processing, machine vision, distributed intelligence, and vision-guided robotics. We investigate the use of computers in order to recognize a wide range of objects, to identify high discriminatory features and to design supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms. A number of applications deal with image processing, scene analyzing, robot navigation, automatic surveillance and tracking, face modeling, gesture-based human-computer interaction.
