Deep learning and Computer vision research for autonomous inspection of Infrastructure and smart cities monitoring
There is a trend to exploit computer vision and deep learning for inspection of infrastructure in smart cities such as bridges and other civil structures. The challenges of using drones or mobile robot to inspect and detect anomalies are huge but is worth exploring. The recent challenges that deep learning face is the need for enormous and annotated data to learn the visual information. Deep learning replaced mobel - based geometry approaches but still much can be learned from the geometry models. The geometry can give us good hints about metrics needed to select fewer training data for deep learning. Carefully selected training data spanning wider range of the required metric will enable the deep learning model to generalize faster after training with a small number of images.

Using Stereovision System on a Fast Moving Unmanned Ground Vehicle
This talk is about developing a high speed, high accuracy stereo vision system and apply it onto an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). Currently UGV mainly uses expensive active sensors such as Lidar and Radar to provide ranging sensing. We talk about obstacle detection, recognition and tracking system, road feature detection, self-localization and mapping system into the all weather, all terrain unmanned autonomous vehicles with the help of stereo camera and graphics processing unit (GPU), so that it can run at high speed from 15 km/h to 60 km/h. The talk will include
· Obstacle Detection
· Object Classification and Tracking
· Road Slope Estimation
· Localization and Mapping
· Lane and Kerb Detection
