Directions to iLab

We are located in the basement of the Hedco Neuroscience Building, on the USC University Park Campus in downtown Los Angeles. To come to USC, take the 110 freeway, and exit on Exposition Blvd, a couple of miles South of the intersection between the 110 and 10 freeways. Then follow the directions on this map. Beware that parking costs $8 unless you have made previous arrangements with us to have a parking permit reserved for you at the campus entrance gate.

You may also want to check these official USC maps and driving directions.

Prof. Itti's office is in Room 30A, and the laboratory and student offices are in Rooms 6, 9, 30 and 10A. Our Beowulf computer cluster is in Room 10, eye-tracking setups in rooms 7F and 13A, machine shop in room 11 and conference room in room 15.

Computing Resources

Servers and workstations

The lab is equipped with a number of computers which run the Linux operating system. A partial list is below. You may also want to check out our old Beowulf Page for an older system.

Beobot Lab

Our lab has recently been equipped for robotics and electronics research, in paritcular around the Beobot Project. The facilities include an assortment of hand tools, oscilloscope, multimeters, soldering iron, lab power supplies, various batteries and chargers, precision drill, and miscellaneous electronics and mechanical parts. In addition, two Linux PCs (one of which is a fast dual-CPU machine) are available in the Beobot lab for software development and testing. The Beobot lab is located in room HNB-30A.

Eye-Tracking Lab

The USC Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) acquired an eye-tracking device which is hosted in room HNB-13b. The video-based 240Hz tracker allows for recording of eye position while human subjects observe a variety of visual stimuli. This system is used to investigate human visual processing at the sub-conscious and conscious levels. See the NGP Eye-Tracker Home Page for additional information.
