Security Technology Research and DevelopmentResearch group STRaDe is a part of Department of Intelligent Systems at Faculty of Information Technology of Brno University of Technology. Main focus of the STRaDe group is research and development in the field of security technologies with accent on both hardware and software aspects. Security technologies involve wide spectra of applications and devices. Huge area, which we are interested in, is biometrics whereas we focus nearly on all up to date technologies and metrics - for example acquisition and recognition of fingerprints, eye irises and eye retinas, 3D faces and 3D hands, vein patterns, liveness detection of various biometric characteristics, etc.
The second and no less important part of our research is area of sensoric systems and its application in robotics which is our particular research aim itself. In connection with robotics and biometrics research in area of complex intelligent systems is done. Next part of our research activities is video processing and its implementation in hardware (including acceleration in hardware), where it takes a place as computer vision for various systems and applications.
