Abstract: In the past few years, we have seen the availability of low-cost RGB-D cameras, such as the Microsoft Kinect and Asus Xtion Pro Live, which deliver high framerate dense depth information in addition to color. My research is focused on how these cameras may be used for 3D camera tracking, mapping, and the creation of high-quality models of indoor environments. I will also talk about some applications of my work to interactive modeling, quadcoptor mapping, and object discovery.
