Over the past years, Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute has established its expertise in India in the field of robotics by actively engaging itself in developing many experimental mobile robots suitable for all terrains, operating in an outdoor environment with the aid of a large number of sensors ranging from simple pulse counting encoder to sophisticated Sonar, Radar Laser and Vision. Applying vision sensor for robot navigation and map building was the core driving force behind the initial growth of vision research in the institute, which in coarse of time evolved and gave way to pursuit of work in the field of image processing and computer vision. Research in the field of vision was promoted from the fact that sight being a major source of information for human beings, when provided to machines, can result in the achievement of visual automation for a very broad range of applications.

  The computer vision group in CMERI is currently engaged in the following areas of research:
