System Modeling and Simulation

Multi-object interactional system in real world is too complex to be reconstructed by computer. In our research, an imaging based virtual reality system of object tracking and anti-tracking is established. We have built a photoelectric confrontation simulation system including both seeker and interference was developed to realize 3D object recognition in jamming environment.

Psychological Base of Image Cognition

Psychology is an essential influencing factor of image cognition, however it is difficult to automatically capture and quantificationally analyze by computer. In our research, an image database with psychological semantics, based on Minnesota Multiphase Personality Inventory, was established for psychology test, and significant quantitive features were measured and analyzed by computer. An image-based psychological analysis system has been built to extract human’s psychological features and to study human's image cognition.
