All research labs of the School of Electrical Engineering of the University of Costa Rica, including the IPCV-LAB, openned their doors, to show their latest research results. In this occasion, the Dr. Geovanni Martnez talked about the resutls of the experimental validation of the  monocular visual odometry algorithm, which was developed at the IPCV-LAB and tested outdoors in a real robot platform Clearpath Robotics Husky A200. The Rector of the University of Costa Rica, Dr. Henning Jensen, visited also la IPCV-LAB. 

Dr. Geovanni Martinez contributed with a chapter entitled "Intensity-Difference Based Monocular Visual Odometry for Planetary Rovers” to the book “New Development on Robot Vision” published by Springer Verlag, 2014.

The licenciate student Peter De-Ford will give a talk about his licenciate project entitled  Maximum Likelihood Thresholding Based on Four-Parameter Gamma Distribution” at IEEE International Conference on Electrical Engineering, Computing Science and Automatic Control (IEEE CCE-2014), Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico, Sept. 29 - October 3, 2014.

The master student Luis Diego Rojas will present a poster entitled "Cell Counting Based on Local Intensity Maxima Grouping for In-Situ Microscopy" at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (IEEE ISBI-2014), Beijing, China, April 28 - May 2, 2014. Congratulations!

Dr. Geovanni Martinez will give a talk entitled "Accurate Segmentation of Single Isolate Human Insulin Crystals for In-Situ Microscopy" at the 24th IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Communications and Computaers (IEEE CONIELECOMP 2014), Cholula, Puebla, Mexico, Februsry 26-28, 2014.
