CUNY Professor Ioannis Stamos to Speak on 3D Urban Range Scanning
September 27, 2010
Ioannis Stamos, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Hunter College and the Graduate Center of CUNY, will present a new system for photorealistic urban construction at Stevens Institute of Technology Monday, September 27, at 2 p.m. in Babbio Center Room 221. “Reconstruction and Online Classification from Range Data in Urban Scenes” will explore Stamos’ system for photorealistic urban construction through the use of laser range scanners.
Laser range scanners now have the ability to acquire millions of 3D points of highly detailed and geometrically complex urban sites, opening new avenues of exploration in modeling urban environments. Stamos will present a system for photorealistic urban reconstruction, including range-to-range and range-to-image registration algorithms. He will also describe algorithms that perform online data classification based on sequential algorithms and a hidden Markov model formulation. These highly-efficient algorithms can potentially be integrated with the scanner's hardware, rendering a sensor that not only acquires but also intelligently processes and classifies the scene points. The presentation will include results from real data acquired in the east side of Manhattan.
This presentation is part of the Computer Science Department’s weekly seminar series. For more information, contact Philippos Mordohai at Philippos.Mordohai@stevens.edu.
