Using curves for image registration to aid 3D reconstruction

Course: 236754 (Project in intelligent systems) or 236874 (Project in computer vision) (3 points)
Instructor: Elad Osherov
Number of students: 2
prerequisites: Computer Vision and/or Image Processing 


This project is part of an ongoing research involving computer vision for maritime navigation. In this project you will implement a stereo rig for a maritime environment. This rig include two cameras and a processing unit and will be built in the lab environment.

Since maritime environment could be overloaded by many non-distinctive keypoints or without any keypoints, we aim to implement a 3D reconstruction algorithm based on lines or curves, instead of using keypoints (which is the common way in image registration).
In this project you will build a stereo rig and calibrate it using standard libraries. You will design and implement a registration algorithm based on lines and curves and evaluate the results.
Basic knowledge in Image Processing or Computer Vision is needed, but a keen and curious student will be able to learn most of the knowledge without the proper course using an online course.
