ARM-S: A realtime Robotic manipulation project which leverages a Barett and accompanying sensor package. We replaced government calibration software and built custom object recognition routines leveraging stereo images, flash lidar, and audio sensors.
Complex Mapping: A realtime Robotic mapping application which maps and fuses laserscan/color image data into 3D map for the robot's controller. Problems include range scanner calibration, image to pointcloud registration/calibration, fast stereo computation and fusion, pose filtering, and super resolution.
Urban Reasoning and Geospatial Exploitation Technology (URGENT): Laser scanner mapping project. Main topic was object recognition, but the goal was to build a system capable of city scale processing with semantic object classification. We implemented segmentation and object recognition components.
Range Image Registration: Use the extended gaussian image to register range images which allows for solving the registration problem using fourier techniques. This is a global approach and serves to initizlize the iterative closest point algorithm.
Archaeoviz: 3D image mapping for achaeology. This is a stereo image capture system which uses surveyed markers and stereo images both to calibrate the cameras and to constrain the stereo search range. We also explored ground penetrating radar processing for archaeology applications.
TeleImmersion: A 3D teleconferencing application originally envisioned as a killer app for Internet2. We produced conceptual demos for various applications of teleconferencing involving stereoscopic display setup, and OpenGL object manipulation and examination. This project lives on at UC Berkeley.
JptView: The Java OpenGL Point Cloud Viewer is intended to visualize pointclouds both inside and outside Matlab, and as an interface to perform manual segmentations. The source is released under the GPL.
I was featured in "Debunked" which aired June 17, 2004. As the video states, we measured how spherical these balls were.
Calib2GL: Calibrated OpenGL camera simulator that I wrote for the Tele-Immersion Project.
