Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers - Novel Algorithms for 3D Computer Vision

Department of Computer Science, Technical University of Munich

Abstract

The reconstruction of the 3D world from a moving camera is among the
central challenges in computer vision.  While traditional approaches
have been focused on computing correspondence and 3D structure for a
sparse set of feature points, more recent approaches aim at directly
computing dense geometric surfaces using all available image data.  In
my talk, I will present some recent developments on convex
formulations for dense reconstruction from multiple images or multiple
videos.  Furthermore, I will present real-time capable direct methods
for reconstructing the world from handheld color or RGB-D cameras.
Applications include 3D photography, free-viewpoint television and
driver assistance.
