At least that’s how it goes in academia.

ObjectVideo researchers are offered the opportunity to publish their outstanding works in the proceedings of top computer vision conferences such as the IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference (CVPR) and the IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV).

The team’s latest publications describe some of the latest work that our research team has performed under funding from the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

In the first paper [Geoffrey Taylor, Atul Kanaujia, Krishnan Ramnath, Niels Haering: “A Portable Geo-Aware Visual Surveillance System for Vehicles", in conjunction with the ICCV, Kyoto, Japan 2009] we see the benefit of integrating video analytics with an intuitive map-based interface to the camera systems that are increasingly being deployed on military vehicles.

The second paper [from Asaad Hakeem, Mun Wai Lee, Omar Javed, Niels Haering: "Semantic Video Search using Natural Language Queries", ACM International Conference on Multimedia, Beijing, 2009] explores the work that we are doing to develop the next-generation of video search applications, something that has tremendous potential in the commercial world.
