The Computer Vision Laboratory, ETH Zurich, works on the computer-based interpretation of 2D and 3D image data sets from conventional and non-conventional image sources. The computer vision lab performs research in the fields of Medical Image Analysis and Visualization, Object Recognition, Gesture Analysis, Tracking, and Scene Understanding and Modeling We treat the complete cycle from signals to their interpretation, and to the resulting action. It is our objective to develop universal concepts and methods. In order to meet these challenges, we want to keep our finger at the pulse of international, ongoing research. Therefore, we operate in the context of many collaborations with other labs, like the CO-ME and IM2 Swiss competence centers (NCCR), and many European projects. This said, it simultaneously is our strategy to let difficult, real-world applications drive our research and development. We see collaboration with industry as an important plus for an engineering lab like ours. The groups in CVL are led by Prof. Luc Van Gool, Prof. Gabor Székely, Prof. Ender Konukoglu and Prof. Orçun Göksel.
