Team designs model to automatically detect shadows in aerial images

An example of automatically labeling shadows in an image (left) compared to manually annotating the small region. A Mizzou Engineering team has designed a physics-based model to automatically detect shadows in large-scale aerial images — a development that could lead to improvements in self-driving cars, drones and autonomous robotics. The research team published and presented [...]
