Welcome to the Crowd Surveillance Group. Our research goals are to improve computer image recognition of human targets, and to extract the tracks data from that target. The research is funded by CREU which is an undergraduate research program designed to increase the number of women and underrepresented groups entering graduate studies in computer science. CREU is a joint project of CRA-W and the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC), with support from the National Science Foundation.
This week has been something of a whirlwind. We’ve met almost every day to work on our paper that is due at the end of the week. Everyone had something to contribute. As we reflect back on the past year, we did not manage to complete every task that we set out to do. We … Continue reading Almost done!
We’ve entered the second to last week before the final report is due. Everyone is frantically preparing for the report, and refreshing their memories for the literature review. Dr. Czejdo has been an invaluable resource in helping us to prepare the report. On top of report writing, our instructors have finally realized that the semester … Continue reading Its the penultimate week!
So, this week almost the entire team attended the NASA Swarmathon competition at the Kennedy Space Flight Center in Florida. We were there to observe the robots that we have spent so much time pouring our lives into. It was an interesting week. We came in 11 out of 19, which puts us in the … Continue reading Swarmathon Competition
So, this week we want to concentrate further on how to calculate the speed and track the accuracy of the bounding box (around a person.) Can we keep track of the tightness of the bounding box? How do we get a handle on this issue? In our research, we found a tutorial that explains how … Continue reading OpenCV discoveries!
