Welcome to IPI, the Image Processing and Interpretation Research Group of the department TELIN of the Faculty of Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University (Universiteit Gent).
IPI researchers conduct state of the art research in the field of digital image and video processing for a wide range of applications. Our research covers computer vision, sensor fusion, remote sensing, image reconstruction and enhancement, 3D image and video enhancement and synthetic view generation, and several other related areas. We apply our technology to applications such as autonomous vehicles, drone and intelligent surveillance, agricultural and industrial inspection, (bio)medical imaging, consumer multimedia, and art.
Our group currently counts more than 40 researchers. You can find the full list of our team here. Our senior members are:
IPI is a core research group of imec.
Several of our members are associated with the UAV Research Center. IPI is the leader of the Intelligent Information Processing valorisation consortium I-KNOW and participates in the Hybrid Computed Tomography valorization consortium HyCT.
IPI actively engages in collaborative research with other institutes and companies in the context of regional and European projects. We are currently active in the following collaborative projects:*
Researchers in ACHIEVE are designing highly integrated hardware-software components for the implementation of ultra-efficient embedded vision systems as the basis for innovative distributed vision applications
H2020-MSCA-ITN, 10/2017 – 9/2021
CHARAMBA aims to solve the problem of costly and labour-intensive sampling and chemical analysis of complex material/waste streams
EIT RawMaterials, 1/2020 - 12/2021
IPI contributes to a novel framework of key enabling technologies for safe and autonomous drones. We focus on hyperspectral imaging from manually flown drones for inspection of offshore turbines structure to detect imperfections, such as corrosion deterioration of paint.
ECSEL JU, 10/2019 – 9/2022
IPI investigates cooperative sensor fusion in support of safety and comfort at road intersections especially for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and bikers
