Light Field Capturing
|In our multimedia lab we are maintaining a large movable multi-camera array for room-scale light field capturing, featuring commodity color cameras and Time-of-Flight cameras for depth acquisition.|
|The capturing system currently consists of 24 IDS uEye RGB cameras and 2 Kinect v2 RGB-D cameras assembled on a beam to span a horizontal range of approx. 2.5 meters. The beam can be moved by two linear axes within a horizontal range of 25 cm and 2 meters within the vertical direction, using two isel iMC-S8 microstep controllers with very precise positioning. Image capturing with the uEye cameras is synchronized by an external hardware trigger.|
|The deformation tracking project has its focus on the reconstruction of flexible objects from depth and color videos. The Analysis by Synthesis (AbS) method developed in this project is able to meet the different requirements of various applications by its modular approach.|
|Today there are no simple and cost-effective systems available to map interiors. The purpose of the research is the development of a low-cost solution for automatic mapping of empty or slightly furnished interiors.|
|This project aims at the automated handling of flexible goods using robots. For this purpose Time-of-Flight depth cameras are used to capture the object deformation and use this as input to the robot which handles the flexible goods.|
|In this research area methods for the evaluation of shape and motion of bubbles from|
|underwater gas seeps are explored.|
|The goal of this project is to manufacture large-scale premium class 3D pictures that can be viewed without visual aids, like e. g. polarized eyeglasses. Therefore it is necessary to establish and refine the individual production steps that are needed for industrial production.|

MoSeS (Modular Sensor Software)
|Kompetenzverbund Software Systems Engineering (KoSSE).|
|The ambition of this research project was the development of software building blocks for versatile computer vision applications such as visual tracking of a mobile robot, 3d reconstruction from video or RGB-D data, surveillance, or augmented reality, supporting a diversity of host platforms, operating systems, and devices (e.g. cameras, laser rangefinders, inertial sensors). Furthermore, a GUI for creation, execution and data flow control of applications build from these modules was implemented and evaluated in industrial projects, e.g. with the pipe inspection systems manufacturer IBAK.|
|3D4YOU - Content Generation and Delivery for 3D Television|
|The 3D4YOU project is a European research project to develop and establish standards for 3D Television in a wide range of aspects. Combining the expertise of different teams from across Europe, the goal of the project is to build a 3D Television production chain from content generation to end-consumer delivery.|
|The aim of this project is the development of an Augmented Reality binocular system. The binocular overlays the visible image with information e.g. from sea charts to improve the nautical navigation.|

Research Project: IBAK Sewer Shaft Profile Measuring
Research Project: Helicopter Camera
Research Project: INVENT
Research Project: ORIGAMI
We focused on solutions for the creation of 3D background models - in particular from uncalibrated cameras, depth estimation and geometrical 3D modeling and novel image based photorealistic rendering following a plenoptic rendering approach.
Research Project: 3D Reconstruction from Images
This research project aimed at automatic 3D reconstruction from images of a moving camera via a Structure from Motion approach. The project was presented on CeBIT 2003.
