Dr. D. J. Lee's research work includes four areas: high-performance embedded vision computing, real-time robotic and machine vision applications, object detection and classification, and biomedical informatics and medical imaging. High-performance embedded vision computing focuses on 3-D computer vision, vision-guided intelligent ground robots, hardware implementaion of real-time vision algorithms for embedded vision sensors. Robotic and machine vision applications focus on industrial automation and non-contact evaluation using vision technologies. Object detection and classification includes pattern matching and recognition. Bioinformatiics foscuses on medical image shape analysis, content-based medical image retrieval, retrieval with user relevance feedback. Please click Robotic Vision Lab for more details.
