Research Areas

This section provides an overview of the research activities of the CVL. The research in the group is guided by two principles:

  • Develop sound theories that allow to predict results of methods without the need for trial and error
  • Experience shows that expert knowledge from different disciplines is important in many applications, but very difficult to asses

Hence our goal is to acquire such know-how; avoid as much as possible the need for verbal definitions and use instead interactive, graphical, iconic communications.
