Two publications were accepted at the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) 2014. ECCV is one of the top conferences for researchers in the field of computer vision.
ECCV 2014 takes place for the 13th time and will be held from September 6th to September 12th in Zürich (Switzerland).
Alain Pagani hat am 13.06.2014 seine Dissertation mit der wissenschaftlichen Aussprache erfolgreich abgeschlossen.
Seine Doktorarbeit trägt den Titel „Reality models for efficient registration in Augmented Reality“. In seiner Arbeit befasste sich Alain Pagani mit mathematischen Modellen realer Objekte oder Szenen, um das Problem der Kameraregistrierung im Forschungsfeld Erweiterte Realität zu behandeln. Die vorgeschlagenen bildbasierte Verfahren ermöglichen eine effiziente Kamerapose-Berechnung in unterschiedlichen Szenarien und lösen somit eine grundliegende Herausforderung der erweiterten Realität.
Gutachter der Arbeit sind Prof. Dr. Didier Stricker und Prof. Dr. Michael Felsberg (Linköping University).
Wir gratulieren Alain Pagani herzlich zu diesem Erfolg!

Recently two publications resulting from research work within the Augmented Vision Group were accepted at the WSCG 2014 conference (http://www.wscg.cz/). Both publications address image-based 3D reconstruction relying on perspective respectively spherical images.

Correspondence Chaining for Enhanced Dense 3D Reconstruction
The paper proposes and evaluates a new algorithm to fuse existing dense two-view 3D reconstruction algorithms to a multi-view reconstruction, where each 3D point is estimated from multiple images. This leads to an enhanced precision and reduced redundancy of the reconstructed model.

Consistent Pose Uncertainty Estimation for Spherical Cameras
The paper discusses and evaluates the reliability of first order uncertainty propagation results in context of spherical Structure from Motion, concluding that they are not valid without restrictions, but depend on the choice of the objective function.
The “International Conference in Central Europe on Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision” (WSCG) takes place for the 22nd time and will be held from June 2nd to June 5th in Pilzen (Czech Republic).
