Centre for Visual Computing
World-class research and development in visual image data processing, bridging the business and academic worlds.
The Centre has a unique dual focus. Our research projects change the way we compute visual image data; our commercial projects address real business problems and deliver practical applications for our industry partners.
With a strong interdisciplinary focus, our research activity brings together three areas of expertise – computational, physiological and psychological – in order to make advances in fields as diverse as visual media, biometrics, security and computer gaming.
We are always looking to get involved in new research partnerships and collaborative projects and occasionally have opportunities for research placements and studentships.
Companies work with us in a number of ways, from research and development and consultancy to bespoke software development and digital content creation. Some research projects have even resulted in spin-off companies.
We understand what our industry partners are looking for and address their core requirements while bringing academic excellence and fresh thinking to every project. These are the industries we work with most regularly.
The Centre for Visual Computing has access to the latest equipment in all the fields in which we operate.
This includes the latest 3D non-contact scanning facilities, an industry standard motion capture suite and a video eye tracker.
