We do research on different aspects of computer vision,  sensor signal processing, and human-machine interface. Most of our projects are guided by applications in assistive technology for people who are blind or have a visual impairment.

The laboratory, formed in 2001 by R. Manduchi and H. Tao, is part of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. Our research is or has been supported by grants from NSF, NIH, DARPA, NASA, Research to Prevent Blindness, Transportation Research Board, CITRIS, HP Labs, SAIC, Honda Research, Imimtek, NEC, Nokia Research, CITRIS, VW, Microsoft, Toyota. We are particularly indebted to the late Mr. Larry Bock, who generously contributed to the mission of our lab.

The lab is located at E2-209.

If you are interested in joining the UCSC Computer Vision Lab as a graduate student, please apply to the Computer Science and Engineering Program.
