University of Illinois at Chicago
CVRL is a research facility specializing in the theoretical and applied research in computer vision and robotics. Its mission is to provide a multidisciplinary environment for students and researchers interested in synergy between science and engineering. Current research activities range from visual information retrieval to applications of haptics in dental education. Established in 1999, CVRL has steadily grown in size and is home to several students pursuing graduate degrees (M.S. and Ph.D.) in Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering. It has excellent computing resources, and is equipped with a pair of Puma 560 manipulators, several mobile robots and a PHANToM haptic device.
