I am developing a sophisticated 3D reconstruction tool, for deployment in biological analysis. While this has additional applications in surface-based quality analysis for structural integrity and systems evaluation, the current objective is a tool to assist with wildlife monitoring. To ensure effective construction, I'm employing industry-proven development and design patterns. Yes, it is hilarious to have a daily scrum when its just me. Woohoo!

Ideal workflow. Left images shamelessly borrowed from Banff National Park, Canada. 3D model from 123D catch model.

Core objectives include:

  • Using RGB-D cameras to capture and model dynamic systems for practical purposes
  • Developing a system which can perform on generic models, without significant apriori information

This system is currently under development. For more information, see the project overview, timeline and motivation. My less-descriptive university page is found here.

Note: Microsoft Research had its exciting KinectFusion and Fusion4D released in 2016ish.

Also, still not dead. But I have some new pretty videos - hopefully I can toss up the most recent ones (from last week) soon.

Last month: Came down with the plague (flu), and bought a house. No response yet from Google/Shahram Izadi regarding the PerceptiveIO team.

Today: Nudged the Google contact. Looked into what's being used these days for 3D scanning on animals. Namely the work on Digital Life 3D is very cool, even if its using standard cameras (high res though!). There are also CT scans being done by the "Fish Guy". Minor outline updates for the survey paper. Read more...

Yester...year: Not dead yet. And the paper has been successfully submitted to PAMI. An Intel R435 has been acquired for additional testing and experimentation. Faramarz and I have both connected with Google/Shahram Izadi of the PerceptiveIO team (did you notice their webpage has expired, eh?) in the last week, and no response yet.

Today: Re-organized workspace on campus, got caught up in where I'm at and what I'm up to with the survey paper. Updating to Windows 10 (or maybe just updating within Windows 7...) Read more...

Twenty-two (22) items left to address in the paper edits. Some involve creating figures. Lets see how quickly we can knock them off and move onto the next exciting paper!
