Chellappa has been in the news recently for his intelligent surveillance system that is based on pattern recognition and biometrics technology. He and his graduate student, Aravind Sundaresan, were also recently awarded the University of Maryland Invention of the Year prize for their "Markerless Motion Capture" technology.
