The goal of this project is to create a complete 3D virtual model for HKUST with semantics. We will use RGB-D sensor, and other computer vision techniques to acquire the 3D virtual model of HKUST. Apart from this conventional geometry acquisition step, we will also do semantic understanding on the 3D model. The final semantic 3D model will be useful in many ways, such as virtual walkthrough (virtual reality), robotics training, route and evaluation planning, campus re-design/remodeling.
Required Skill: basic C++/Python programming, computer graphics background is
The students will learn about 3D reconstruction techniques, semantic understanding techniques, computational design approaches, virtual reality application. They will get training on RGB-D data capturing, data processing and how to build a 3D application.
