About us


The Computer Vision Group (CVG) is part of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DISI) of the University of Bologna. Our researchers (computer scientists, mathematicians, biomedical and electronic engineers) are involved into projects concerning image analysis and scene understanding in different fields of computer vision, pattern recognition and signal processing, using single and multiple cameras, with different wavelength (visual, IR, X-ray, etc.) and sensing technologies (capacitive, inertial, magnetic, etc.).

The research activity of CVG covers several application fields and what follows represents a significant, but not exhaustive, list:

CVG has been carrying out a well-established industrial research activity, in collaboration with leading industries in agribusiness, manufacturing and automotive sectors to develop industrial prototypes in the field of defect analysis and quality control of products, exploiting real time static and temporal image analysis techniques concerning automatic measurements (image metrology), pattern recognition and classification.

CVG is also involved in bio-medical research activities with medical and biological research centres aiming at introducing image-based technologies to assist, or even replace, human assessment in quality control.

Our labs have been realized together with the Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems (ARCES) and they are located in:

  • Cesena - School of Engineering and Architecture, University of Bologna, Via Cavalcavia 797, 47023 Cesena

  • Bologna - ARCES, Via Toffano 2/2, 40125 Bologna
  • People coming from the CVG group have also established Alma Vision, a spinoff dedicated to automatic visual surveillance, people tracking and machine vision applications.
