A3D

animal3D

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.

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!

Yesterday: (Last two weeks). Struggled wtih this website. It seems PmWiki has updated likely broken the use of Blog-It for posting. (Issues with formatting, and unable to associate with the blog it groups - via missing post controls).

Took time to go over Faramarz's feedback from the draft document of last fall. There are a lot of things that will need to be re-worked in whatever form it takes next. Started part-time work, and had bereavement issues last week.


Aliasing Issues

No Aliasing Issues!

(Yesterday) Finally worked out the issues causing aliasing on my in-house examples when loaded into SiftFu. Wasn't creating the depth files correctly. They appear to be accurate now, and generate better images. The stationary parts of the scene are not as smooth as desired, but this may be due to the dynamic nature of the in-house examples.

Today: Look at incorporating rigid feature labels for constructing volumetric representation in SiftFu. Visualize the results of this for the different groupings selected. Will need to look at extracting codebase from Matlab, or incorporating a GPU implementation for speed ups (its is awfully slow); as well as RGB colouring of results. Read more...
