About my blog

Based on novel robot vision/image recognition algorithms, it is possible to reconstruct a 3D model with a simple webcam in real-time. The AR drone, equipped with several cameras seems to be a perfect match to establish a 3D scanning system for large objects, such as cars or buildings. (Experts: Ronald Poelman&Oytun Akman)




De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Looking back on the Science Fair

Last Tuesday, the first of November, down the basement of the Faculty of Industrial Design we showed what we achieved in the past five weeks. To do that we used a beamer and two laptops on a desk. The beamer projected a short movie about the content of our project and some recommendations. This movie will be posted on this blog asap. One of the two laptops was for running the interface we made, which is already posted on this blog. Interested people were able to test the interface. The other laptop was equipped with a 3Dscreen and 3Dgoggles, so people can see a pointcloud we made, in 3D. Ofcourse the AR.Drone was also there with the GoPro camera. The drone actually flew a few minutes during the Science Fair.

We all enjoyed the project with as highlight the Science Fair. We think that all groups did very interesting research and gave nice presentations of their findings. Our compliments to all of you!

We’re going to use the AR.Drone, Parret’s quadricopter, to record video’s for PTAM. This quadricopter has four propellers, is thus very stable and can be controlled by an iPhone or Android smartphone.
