Alain Pagani schließt Promotion erfolgreich ab


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!
