In a state-of-the-art research lab, students of all types – undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral – make breakthrough discoveries in image analysis and computer vision. Welcome to Speed School's Computer Vision and Image Processing Center (CVIP).
Computer Vision and Image Processing Laboratory
The Computer Vision and Image Processing Center (CVIP Center) was established in 1994 at the University of Louisville and is committed to excellence in research, teaching and training of image analysis and computer vision.
Our research includes:
- Medical Imaging
- Automatic Refueling
- Smart Vision Sensors
- Facial Recognition
- And much more…

Visual appearance can be phenomenologically modeled through an integral equation, known as reflectance equation. It describes the surface radiance which depends on the interaction between incident light field and surface Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF).
In this study, the authors learn a similarity measure that discriminates between inter-class and intra-class samples based on a statistical inference perspective. A non-linear combination of Mahalanobis is proposed to reflect the properties of a likelihood ratio test.
Capability ATRV2 / ATRV-Mini
The CVIP owns two mobile, all-terrain robots. These vehicles have a low center of gravity, weather-resistant enclosure, and can be programmed for military or commercial use.
