Introduction to Courses

Recognition programming


Comprehensive Practicum


Intensive course of two-week period (from latter half of August to former half of September)


Profs. Enokida and Saitoh (Kyutech)


Students develop and improve the software programming of image processing for both driver monitoring (face direction and drowsiness estimation) for inside the car, and road condition recognition (e.g., traffic sign recognition, lane and pedestrian detection) for the car’s outside view, where the images are obtained by a vehicle-installed camera. Then, applying the developed techniques to practical use in real environments, students try to improve their processing speed and robustness in recognition operation. They also participate in a comprehensive practicum using the developed techniques with high-performance GPS (RTK-GPS) and hand-held smart devices.
