The School of Technology at Oxford Brookes University is funding a PhD
studentship in Computer Vision and Robotics/Autonomous Navigation
under the new Intelligent Transport Systems Doctoral Training
Autonomous navigation of intelligent vehicles requires solving a
number of sophisticated vision problems, such as the recognition of
static (signs, cars) and moving (people, animals, bicycles) obstacles
along the vehicle’s path or in its vicinity, the localization and
tracking of 3D points in dynamic scenes, object motion prediction and
Techniques derived from recent developments in manifold learning,
graph optimization and spectral decomposition may be potentially
useful in tackling such problems.
