E. R. Davies

University of London, United Kingdom


Roy Davies received an M.A. degree and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Oxford. He works as Emeritus Professor of machine vision at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has worked on signal recovery, noise suppression, thinning, feature detection, Hough transforms, robust pattern matching, and artificial neural networks. Davies has specialized in algorithm design for automated visual inspection. His research interests also include surveillance, vehicle guidance, crime detection, and real-time vision. He has published more than 200 papers, most of them on machine vision; he has also published three books which are Machine Vision: Theory, Algorithms, Practicalities (1990); Electronics, Noise and Signal Recovery (1993); Image Processing for the Food Industry (2000). The first of these is widely used internationally in the machine vision field and is now out in a much enhanced third edition (2005). Davies is a regular reviewer for the major vision journals and is on the Editorial Boards of Real-Time Image Processing, Pattern Recognition Letters, Imaging Science, and IET Image Processing. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Moreover, he serves as a Senior Member of the IEEE. In 1996, he achieved a D.S. degree from the University of London for his work on the science of measurement, including signal processing and machine vision. He has been a Member of the BMVA Committee for 16 years, and he has been its Meetings Officer from 1994 to 1998. Davies is the Editor of BMVA News and is also the Editor of the Annals of the BMVA. Following his award as BMVA-Distinguished Fellow (2005), he was honored in 2008 by Fellowship of the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
