In 1994, Prof. Yuzo Iano founded the LCV (Laboratory of Visual Communications, or Laboratório de Comunicações Visuais). Since then, the laboratory has consistently been tasked with solving very specific industrial technical problems as well as providing academic research with solid results. The LCV is a laboratory dedicated to developing state-of-the-art advances in technology through innovation and technological research for the benefit of humanity and the world’s technical society. It is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, and computer science fields as well as any related areas of science and technology that exist in our modern civilization.

The diversity of researchers in the LCV is a result of the commitment of its founder and director to create and nourish research talents in the world. The LCV consists of a selection of both Brazilian and worldwide researchers, some coursing the graduate program while others have already obtained their PhD degrees.

The LCV is associated with the Communications Department (DECOM) of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC) at University of Campinas (UNICAMP). The DECOM activities started up around 1970, before being part of the FEEC, when most of its members worked in the communications area. In 1976, the DECOM became part of the Electrical Engineering Department, which has resulted in 1986 to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE). This, with the creation of the computer engineering course in 1996, was renamed Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC).

“We individually distinguish ourselves by our sets of skills and characteristics. The sum of all of our strengths flows directly into our results; this is the basis of our team-oriented working philosophy.”
