|Siewiorek Named Director of Quality of Life Technology Center|
June 05, 2013. Daniel P. Siewiorek has been named director of the Quality of Life Technology (QoLT) Center, a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center. Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh are partners in the center, which focuses on creating intelligent systems that improve the quality of life for everyone while enabling older adults and people with disabilities.
|Kanade: Computer Vision to Drive Sports, Entertainment, Medicine|
February 25, 2013. Takeo Kanade, one of the world’s foremost researchers in computer vision, spoke to students, faculty and the community as part of the A. Nico Habermann Distinguished Lecture Series in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar.
|Smart Headlight System Will Have Drivers Seeing Through the Rain|
July 09, 2012. Drivers can struggle to see when driving at night in a rainstorm or snowstorm, but a smart headlight system invented by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute can improve visibility by constantly redirecting light to shine between particles of precipitation.
|Researchers turn motion capture inside out|
August 08, 2011. Traditional motion capture techniques use cameras to meticulously record the movements of actors inside studios, enabling those movements to be translated into digital models. But by turning the cameras around — mounting almost two dozen, outward-facing cameras on the actors themselves — scientists at Disney Research, Pittsburgh (DRP), and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have shown that motion capture can occur almost anywhere — in natural environments, over large areas and outdoors.
April 26, 2011. Revolutionary technology from researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Quality of Life Technology Center is helping the blind to see. With the BrainPort Vision Device, users can perceive the approximate shape, size, location and motion of objects in their environment.
|Kanade Wins ACM/AAAI Newell Award|
April 06, 2011. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has named Takeo Kanade, the U.A. and Helen Whitaker University Professor of Computer Science and Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University, the 2010 winner of the ACM/AAAI Allen Newell Award for contributions to research in computer vision and robotics.
|Carnegie Mellon Using Cell Phones, Facebook to Map Potholes|
March 07, 2011. Potholes are the scourge of drivers during each spring thaw, often resulting in complaints to local government street departments and sometimes a trip to the repair shop. Now a Carnegie Mellon University project allows anyone with a GPS-linked cell phone camera and a Facebook account to take an active role in monitoring the constantly changing pothole environment. The Road Damage Assessment System (RODAS) Project, www.rodasproject.org, enables anyone to click a photo of a pothole and upload it via Facebook.
|Carnegie Mellon Joins Computational Behavioral Science Project|
August 19, 2010. Researchers in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University will join a five-year, $10 million initiative funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create novel tools for evaluating social interactions and other behaviors that can be used in diagnosing or treating behavioral disorders such as autism.
|Display Technology Projects Images Onto Water Droplets|
July 06, 2010. AquaLux 3D, a new projection technology developed at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, can target light onto and between individual water droplets, enabling text, video and other moving or still images to be displayed on multiple layers of falling water.
