Computer Science Lecturer Awarded National Institute of Aerospace Grant

  Friday, August 26, 2016

Keith Perkins, visiting lecturer in the Department of Physics, Computer Science and Engineering, has been awarded a two-year, $60,000 grant from the National Institute of Aerospace for his work with high-powered lasers, which have a wide range of commercial and research applications.

“Currently, viewing an otherwise invisible laser beam requires cumbersome equipment, which is inconvenient, time-consuming and encourages unsafe behavior,” says Perkins. “This project will develop an enhanced eyewear system that will allow an operator to safely see a laser beam in real time while also providing freedom of movement.”

Perkins’ area of interest is computer vision, including augmented reality and neural networks.
