Image-Based 3D Scene Reconstruction

This class will be taught at the University of Kiel. The goal is to provide students with the mathematical background and computer vision algorithms for automated scene reconstructions from camera images, starting from correspondences, projective geometry and view relations, but extending to sparse and dense reconstruction and applications.

Due to the Corona situation, in summer term 2020 this course will be held online.

Pose Estimation for Mapping and VR/AR Tracking

This lecture will be taught during fall/winter semesters at FH Kiel. It is a combined lecture + lab, where you will learn about cameras and machine vision, in particular how to measure and to track the position and orientation of a camera and how we can digitally reconstruct the environment for marine mapping or for augmented and virtual reality applications. During the lab you will develop the steps for "structure from motion" using OpenCV. The lecture is intended for computer science master students.
