Richard Hartley

Richard is renowned as the founder of the field of multi-view geometry in computer vision – his text has received over 12500 citations.  He will contribute to the Centre’s Camera Hardware and Learning for Vision projects. Richard has been at the Australian National University since January 2001. He is also the Program Leader for the Autonomous Systems and Sensor Technology Program of NICTA.  Richard worked at the General Electric Research and Development Center from 1985 to 2001. He became involved with Image Understanding and Scene Reconstruction working with GE’s Simulation and Control Systems Division. This division built large-scale flight-simulators. Dr. Hartley’s projects in this area were in the construction of terrain models and texture mosaics from aerial and satellite imagery. From 1995 he was GE project leader for a shared-vision project with Lockheed-Martin involving design and implementation of algorithms for an AFIS (fingerprint analysis) system being developed under a Lockheed-Martin contract with the FBI. This involved work in feature extraction, interactive fingerprint editing and fingerprint database matching. In 2000, he co-authored (with Andrew Zisserman) a book for Cambridge University Press, summarizing the previous decade’s research in this area. (Over 34,000 citations and an h-index of 57).
