ICT lab researcher Mhd Adnan Utayim has been awarded the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award.
The proposal is on “3D Reconstruction of large-scale areas from remote-sensor data”. A summary of the project is shown below:
In the proposed work we will explore other methods to alleviate issues relating to large-scale 3D reconstruction from remote-sensor data and result in higher quality, accurate 3D models. In particular, we will investigate the reformulation of the problem as an optimization problem involving a finite set of parameterized primitives. The anticipated result is the complete representation of the captured scene as a combination of basic primitives comprising of lightweight, watertight, and simple polygonal 3D models.
