Section: Bilateral Contracts and Grants with Industry


Participants : Jakob Verbeek, Julien Bardonnet.

Since 2004 we have collaborated with MBDA on a variety of subjects, namely object detection, tracking and matching. Several PhD students have been funded by MBDA, and code has been transferred which is integrated in products. Our collaboration resulted in 2010 in the award of the MBDA prize for innovation. Since May 2015 we have one engineer funded by MBDA working on incremental learning of object detection models. The goal is to take pre-existing vehicle models, and to quickly adapt them to new images of these vehicles when they are acquired in the field.
