Engineering 100

Underwater Vehicle Design ENGR 100 -  Fall 2014

Students design, build, and test their fast and maneuverable own remotely operated vehicle (ROV), sometimes called a submersible, for underwater exploration.  This is a “free design” project with minimal constraints on size, shape, and function. Student teams are provided with raw building materials, 4 thrusters, a blank control box, toggle switches and buttons, and a payload consisting of a battery, a video camera (to steer by), and a tether to connect the control box to the ROV. 

EECS 442

Computer Vision EECS 442 - Fall 2013, Fall 2014

The course is an introduction to 2D and 3D computer vision. Topics include: cameras models, the geometry of multiple views; shape reconstruction methods from visual cues: stereo, shading, shadows, contours; low-level image processing methodologies such as edge detection, feature detection; mid-level vision techniques (segmentation and clustering); Basic high-level vision problems: face detection, object and scene recognition, object categorization, and human tracking.
