Everyone interested is cordially invited to the talk of Prof. Roderik Lindenbergh (TU Delft, NL) on Robust geometry extraction in large spatial point clouds in the frame of the IWR Colloquium at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing.
When: Wednesday, 27th June 2018, 14:15
Where: Conference Room (5th Floor), Mathematikon, INF 205
Before the talk, there will be a Meet&Greet (13:45 / Common Room (5th Floor), Mathematikon, INF 205) with the opportunity to meet the speaker in person over a cup of coffee and some cookies.
Robust geometry extraction in large spatial point clouds
Laser scanning efficiently samples our urban and natural environment. LIDAR systems on tripods, cars, drones, planes and even backpacks are able to collect billions of 3D points in a few hours. What remains challenging is to automatically extract valid geometric information from these points clouds in a similarly efficient way. In the presentation issues with these point clouds will be discussed, followed by some overview of methods to extract geometric information on e.g. trees, traffic signs, tunnels or beaches in a robust and computationally efficient way.
