Pattern Recognition and Remote Sensing Laboratory


Pattern Recognition and Remote Sensing Laboratory (PARRSLAB) was established in 2014 at the Hacettepe University, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. PARRSLAB is committed to excellence in fundamental and applied research in remote sensing, machine learning and computer vision. Over the past years, PARRSLAB has been funded largely by Tubitak (the national science foundation of Turkey), and has several ongoing projects with companies in the defense industry. Our latest projects include fusion of hyperspectral and Lidar data, target detection from ground penetrating radar data, and medical image processing.

If you are interested in these fields, we are always looking for collaborators, talented graduate as well as undergraduate students. Please skim through our projects and let us know if you have any questions.
