vision lab logo

The Computer Vision Laboratory was established in the Computer Science Department at the University of Massachusetts in 1974 with the goal of investigating the scientific principles underlying the construction of integrated vision systems and the application of vision to problems of real-world importance. The emphasis of our work is on vision systems that are capable of functioning flexibly and robustly in complex changing environments.
