Spy Camera Pioneer To Join Georgia Tech Faculty

Wayne Wolf, a leading expert in embedded computing systems and smart cameras, will join the Georgia Institute of Technology in July to take the Rhesa "Ray" S. Farmer Jr. Distinguished Chair in Embedded Computer Systems.

Wolf has helped develop new distributed smart-camera systems, in which cameras cooperate in real time to analyze activities in a scene, such as movements of people, vehicles, and other objects.

Colleagues said Wolf's work has direct impact in the area of homeland security. His research has "clear implications for how surveillance and homeland security applications are now developed and will be in the future," said Gary May, computer engineering professor at Georgia Tech. It will also have "critical importance to the economic and overall security of Atlanta and the state as a whole," he said.

Wolf was most recently a professor of electrical engineering at Princeton, where he worked on embedded computing and very-large-scale integration (VLSI), a process of combining thousands of circuits on a single chip.
