      Media/News Essex University Working on a Driverless Car

    Some interesting research from Essex University deals with autonomous vehicles.
    The intelligent model car will be built using a standard remote control model vehicle. A PC will be mounted on the chassis and a video camera, streaming real-time computer vision, along with other sensors will be added. The software written for the PC will allow the car to be fully autonomous; it will be able to recognise obstacles and make tactical decisions as it drives itself around the racetrack.

      Media/News Bionic Vision in the New Scientist

    Here is one wonderful application of computer vision and image interpretation research.
    "Trials of the new retinal prosthesis will begin shortly, following the success of a prototype that has enabled six blind people to see again. The prototypes were fitted in 2002 to patients who had lost their sight entirely."

      Media/News Computer Vision and George Orwell

    The following article does not focus an any particular application of computer vision, but imagine automating supervision?
    "`People are shocked when they hear the cameras talk, but when they see everyone else looking at them, they feel a twinge of conscience and comply,' said Mike Clark, a spokesman for Middlesbrough Council who recounted the incident. The city has placed speakers in its cameras, allowing operators to chastise miscreants who drop coffee cups, ride bicycles too fast or fight outside bars."
    How long before speeding tickets which are issued by speed traps become more sophisticated by tracking individuals in complex ways?

      Media/News 3-D Video Projection

    This one is a must-see. It seems like a considerable advancement towards holograms (with motion) that are an affordable commodity. The cited page includes a photo and a video.

      Media/News Computer Vision Goes to Hollywood

    The New York Times has a video which demonstrates some exciting new technology with practical applications in the film industry.

    Pardon the commercial that precedes the main feature. It's worth the wait.
