Smart Vision Systems Laboratory was established in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Syracuse University. Current research projects cover the areas of computer vision, embedded systems, sensor networks and wireless communications.

There are currently 7 Ph.D. students in the Smart Vision Systems Laboratory working on the projects including lightweight algorithm design for mobile and static embedded platforms, wireless embedded smart cameras, methodologies to increase battery life of the embedded cameras, object tracking and event detection in Wireless Smart Camera Networks (WiSCaNs), tracking of vehicle taillights and detection of vehicle alert signals, autonomous fall detection and activity classification.
