Welcome to the home pages for the Real-Time Vision Group at the University of Bristol. The group specialises in the design of algorithms that enable vision tasks to be performed in real-time on a standard PC or laptop. We are based in the Department of Computer Science and are part of the Bristol Computer Vision Group. We also have links with the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.
Currently our work focuses on developing algorithms for localising (or tracking) moving cameras in real-time using only visual information, whilst simultaneously building landmark maps of the surrounding environment. This is termed visual Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM). We are also interested in developing applications based on SLAM technology, notably in the areas of Augmented Reality and Wearable Computing.
