Non-invasive technologies for monitoring complex environments have applications in diverse domains such as security and surveillance, traffic analysis, assisted living, marketing research, sports analysis etc. This macro-activity is concerned with the development of computer vision technologies for dynamic scene understanding in such application contexts.

Recognizing and classifying all the entities appearing in an image is a fundamental goal of computer vision, and constitutes a key element in the semantic understanding of images, videos and other multi-media resources. This macro-activity is concerned with the development of methods for extraction of visual information needed to understand the image content.

Augmented Reality seeks to enrich the users view of the environment with relevant information. It has raised importance with the pervasive use of mobile appliances such as smart-phones. Our activities focus on low-complexity computer vision methods for analyzing images captured with mobile devices to aid AR services such as geo-referenced information overlay and indoor navigation.
