Yesterday: Group meeting on simple sketching for 3D building modeling. Adjusted the matlab code so it views the rigidly transforming point clouds better by default. Installed Matlab on the laptop and connected with Matlab about working with their Kinect and CV libraries.

Took a look at a couple of wilderness cameras. There seems to be night vision and daytime captures. Unsure how to build custom-configured (heat, night, daytime, depth) and be able to define an SDK for self-use, though the price point would be steep ($6k for a drone, $300-800 for GoPro, $300-400 for wilderness camera).

Today: Work on incorporating interpolation of 3D rotations for rigid body motions. Mix up the 3D points, and be able to identify the points which transform rigidly with respect to each other. Visualize the process.

Looking into getting the Kinect running within Matlab (link). Read more...

Roadblocks: N/A

Where Does this Fit In: Having 3D synthetic examples to work with is important in validating the developed reconstruction process.
