My research is conducted as a member of the High Performance Computing Lab at the University of Oregon under the guidance of Dr. Boyana Norris.
The goal of tis project is to develop a system that can be used by muncipaities to count pedestians to make informed decisions about road and sidewalk planning. Eventually, we intend to extend the system to count and differentiate between cars and, bikes, and pedestrians.
This research involves the tuning of various algorithms (in particular object tracking) to minimize resource consumption on the particular architectures.
The goal of this project is to make dinner tonight. If successful we will be able to continue to function as a heathy adult human, earning an income that will allow us to replenish our food stores and eat dinner again tomorrow, thus restarting the cycle. Ideally this project will be ongoing for the duration of our life-time.
