Professor Ian Reid has been awarded a prestigious Australian Laureate Fellowship. The aim of the scheme is to attract and retain outstanding researchers and research leaders of international repute and build and strengthen world-class research capability in Australia.
Professor Reid’s project is “Lifelong Computer Vision Systems” which will create new ways of generating detailed environmental maps in real time, turning standard video cameras into sensors that “understand” a visual scene. This high-level sensing will unlock a wide range of applications for autonomous systems in areas such as robotics and surveillance.
Congratulations to Ian!
