Areas of interest

Professor Ferryman's current research is concerned with the automatic visual surveillance of wide area scenes using computational vision. The research has contributed new results in the areas of model-based vision, visual tracking and surveillance, especially using 3D deformable models.

Specific research includes:

  • Model-based methods for people and vehicle surveillance
  • Appearance-based modelling
  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Pose and structure recovery
  • Classification
  • Path-based tracking of known objects in 3D using single or multiple cameras.

Professor Ferryman is particularly keen to see technology transfer and commercial prototypes based on research.
