Computer Vision Research Group


COMVIS at Department of Electrical Engineering, COMSATS Lahore is established with the major aim to solve and address many existing application problems in Pakistan. It is therefore a primary focus to bring in external funding by means of several high impact projects.

With these aims in mind, the group, initially, has focus on primarily these application areas.

  • Applied Basic Research in Image Pattern Recognition: fundamental issues in statistical learning.
  • Biometric Recognition: individual identification by analyzing their physiological and behavioral characteristics, including face, iris, fingerprint, palm print, etc.
  • Intelligent video processing and understanding: automatic video analysis and understanding to reduce human intervention in surveillance.
  • Surveillance (tracking, identification, road safety)
  • Object categorization and scene analysis in natural images (e.g. building extraction, object recognition, camouflage breaking, feature analysis)
