Welcome to GV2
The Graphics Vision and Visualisation group (GV2) at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) is an internationally active research group dedicated to carrying out innovative research in computer graphics, computer vision and all aspects of visual computing. GV2 was formed in 2006 with the integration of two longstanding TCD research groups: the Image Synthesis Group [ISG], established in 1993, and the Computer Vision and Robotics Group [CVRG], which was established 1983.
Our main areas of research include:
- Image, Video and Audio Processing & Analysis
- Perception & Graphics
- Real-time Rendering & Animation
- Custom and Multi-core Hardware Architectures
- Computer Vision & Augmented Reality
GV2 are co-ordinators of the EU FP7 projects VERVE - "Vanquishing fear and Apathy Through e-inclusion: Personalised and populated virtual environments for clinical, home and mobile platforms" and GRAISearch - "Use of Graphics Rendering and Artificial Intelligence for Improved Mobile Search Capabilities". In addition, since 2006 we have been successful in obtaining over EUR 5M national funding from Science Foundation Ireland and Enterprise Ireland for several major research projects. Previous and current members have been succesful in establishing industry companies such as Surewash, Haptica and Havok.
The group currently has 10 (full time + associated) members and regularly publishes papers in the top international journals and conferences. Over 35 PhD graduates have successfully completed out of GV2 with most working in research and industry related to computer graphics, computer vision and visualisation.
