Yoav Y. Schechner: Lab & Group


Hybrid Imaging Laboratory

The Hybrid Imaging Lab is headed by Prof. Schechner in the Viterbi Faculty of Elect. Eng., Technion. In addition to graduate students and research staff, undergraduate students are employed and perform projects in conjunction to the research activity. The research includes theory, numerics, lab and field experiments (underwater, open air, night, desert etc.).

The lab possesses professional equipment for scuba diving, underwater photography, airborne particle metering and autonomous drones. During 2016-2018, we hosted a PollyXT aerosol lidar from TROPOS and a sun-photometer. The lab has optical tables, motorized stages and a wealth of optical, optomechanical, photography and electronic components. Custom systems and components are frequently made by the research staff, using 3D printing, software developed in-house, optical and electronic integration. Towards this, the lab receives service from the machine and electronic workshops of the EE Faculty and external contractors. A contractor also operates manned-glider flights. We receive great help from the wider community (institutions, businesses and private people) by hosting our camera network nodes voluntarily.

The lab also has a several stabilized light sources, some of which are coupled to a Zeiss Axiovert 200M MAT microscope. This is in addition to PCs, typical to any computer vision lab.
