We transfer a monocular motion stereo 3D reconstruction algorithm from a mobile device (Google Project Tango Tablet) to a rigidly mounted external camera of higher image resolution. A reliable camera synchronization is crucial for the usability of the tablets IMU data and thus a time synchronization method developed. It is based on the joint movement of the cameras.
In a second project, we move from outdoor video scenes to aerial images and strive to segment them into polygonal shapes. While most existing approaches address the problem of automated generation of online maps as a pixel-wise segmentation task, we instead frame this problem as constructing polygons representing objects. An approach based on Faster R-CNN, a successful object detection algorithm, is presented.
