PhD Research Position (4 years) on Image Fusion
The combination of images from different sensor modalities and with
different resolution into a single (more informative) image.
The Perception Department of the TNO Human Factors Research Institute
develops and evaluates algorithms to fuse images from different
electro- optical sensing modalities. Applications are target
detection and recognition, obstacle avoidance, surveillance and
The aim of this project is to develop, implement and evaluate
algorithms to fuse images from multiple sensing modalities in a single
display with increased information content. The appearance of the
fused image should be invariant for time of day, and changes in
weather conditions and seasonal changes. The display should result in
an optimal task performance. The operational value of the algorithms
that are developed will be evaluated by measuring the task performance
of human obersvers performing detection, localisation, surveillance
and navigation tasks with fused imagery and in realistic scenario's.
The project is a collaboration between Signaal, TNO-HFRI and
The development and implementation of image fusion algorithms; the
design and performance of observer experiments to validate the newly
A training and educational program can be provided.
The work should result in a PhD thesis.
