ICAR : Image and Interaction

The Icar team is part of both the computer science department and the robotics department of LIRMM. It specialises in Image and Interaction and works on visual data like images, videos and 3D objects.

Within the Icar team, Three lines of research are pursued:

In the analysis and processing ICAR proposes techniques for handling imprecise, uncertain and incomplete data within the same theoretical framework.

In the coding and protection line, we study how visual data can be transmitted and securely stored. This protection can be achieved by data hiding, encryption or steganalysis, and must be robust to compression methods.

In the modeling and visualization line, we aim to model large and complex visual data sets to enable intuitive visualization or manipulation. This research finds applications in the fields of medicine, artistic and paleontological heritage, security, robotics, agronomy and manufacturing

Our tools

Load your image, apply a choice of algorithms, visualise and download the resulting image.

Analysis and Processing

Vision omnidirectionnelle. Reconstruction d'images de tomographie d'émission, d'images superrésolues. Estimation statistique. Imagerie hyperspectrale et satellitaire.

Multimédia Security

Crypto-compression of images and videos. Watermarking and steganalysis.

Modelisation and Visualisation

Extraction d'informations pertinentes. Représentation des données avec formulations synthétiques génériques
