Peter Veelaert received a degree in electronic engineering from the University of Ghent in 1981. After his studies he started working as an engineer at the Digitized Information Systems Corporation, Belgium, where he developed computer graphics software. In 1986 he joined the Laboratory for Electronics at the University of Ghent from which he received a PhD degree in 1992. He currently teaches and does research at the Department of Applied Engineering Sciences, Ghent University. His current research interests include real-time systems for low-level vision, image interpretation of road scenes, and geometric uncertainty models. He and his research team are also pioneers in real-time vision systems, e.g. by ‘human body segmentation’, a method for measuring body movement without wearing any sensors.
