Event Details:


Venue: Carnegie Mellon Qatar: Moot Board Room (Room 1131)

Takeo Kanade, a computer and robotics professor at Carnegie Mellon will deliver a talk on campus on a new active augmented reality that will improve how humans perceive reality. The talk will present the Smart Headlight Project being developed at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute. Through the use of programmable headlights, this project will enable drivers to take full advantage of their high beams without fear of blinding oncoming drivers or suffering from the glare that can occur when driving in bad weather or at night.

Kanade works in multiple areas of robotics: computer vision, multi-media, manipulators, autonomous mobile robots, medical robotics and sensors. He has written more than 400 technical papers and reports in these areas. He has been the principal investigator of more than a dozen major vision and robotics projects at Carnegie Mellon.

Kanade is a U.A. and Helen Whitaker University Professor of Computer Science and Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.
