Pascual Campoy is Full Professor on Automatics at the Universidad Politécnica Madrid (U.P.M.). He presently lectures on Control, Machine Learning and Computer Vision at graduated and post-graduated level.
He has been in charge of assorted research projects regarding the introduction of Computer Vision techniques in the Industry, focused in three main application areas: Automated Visual Inspection, 3D Vision and Visual Information Management System. He has been leader of 7 Projects funded by the European Commission, 12 Spanish R&D projects and 13 projects contracted by the industry. He is inventor of 6 patents in the field of Computer Vision, registered in 13 countries in Europe and South-America. His research activities have been gathered in over 80 international publications in technical journals and symposia contributions. He was founder of the company “I4: Innovation in Industrial Images Inspection”, which is a spin-off of the U.P.M. and it is aimed to transfer R&D results to the industry in the field of Machine Visio.
He is presently leading a group for Vision on UAVs, that includes object tracking, visual control and guidance, visual SLAM, stereo and omni-deirectional vision. He is presently working on new learning paradigms for bio-inspired Neural Networks that are aimed to be used in image segmentation, image recognition, and image coding and retrieval.
