DFKI Augmented Vision Researchers win 3 awards in Object Pose Estimation challenge (BOP Challenge, ICCV 2023)

DFKI Augmented Vision researchers Praveen Nathan, Sandeep Inuganti, Yongzhi Su and Jason Rambach received their 1st place award in the prestigious BOP Object Pose Estimation Challenge 2023 in the categories Overall Best RGB Method, Overall Best Segmentation Method and The Best BlenderProc-Trained Segmentation Method.

The BOP benchmark and challenge addresses the problem of 6-degree-of-freedom object pose estimation, which is of great importance for many applications such as robot grasping or augmented reality. This year, the BOP challenge was held within the “8th International Workshop on Recovering 6D Object Pose (R6D)” http://cmp.felk.cvut.cz/sixd/workshop_2023/  at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) in Paris, France https://iccv2023.thecvf.com/  .

The awards were received by Yongzhi Su and Dr. Jason Rambach on behalf of the DFKI Team and a short presentation of the method followed. The winning method was based on the CVPR 2022 paper “ZebraPose”  

The winning approach was developed by a team led by DFKI AV, with contributing researchers from Zhejiang University.
