Teaching assistant: Gim Hee Lee |
Lectures: Mondays from 09:00-12:00 in CAB G51 |
|Prerequisite: Computer Vision lecture from last semester, particularly the camera model, geometric aspects and structure-from-motion.
If you have not attended that class, there will be a very short repetition, but you would have to study necessary basics yourself.
This course aims to provide students with knowledge on several topics in 3D photography.
In each class, student will first be given an introductory lecture on a selected topic from 3D photography.
This is followed by students presenting selected papers relevant to the topic of the week.
A maximum of 2 papers shall be presented in each lecture. Other students are encouraged to engage in the paper presentations through active discussions.
Students are also expected to work on a project related to any of the topics in 3D photography through the semester.
The project could be done individually or in a team of 2 people. Students must give a final presentation/demo of their projects at the end of the semester.
||20%: Paper presentation.
||80%: Final project which includes a report and presentation/demo.
Discussion Forum Page
We have created a new discussion forum page in ILIAS under this

and projects there. See this instruction document on how to join the group!
Available hardware for projects
Students are encouraged to use their own SLR/digital cameras, phones, OpenSource dataset (example from flickr) etc for their projects.
However, students who do not own any of the equipment could also make arrangements with our lab for any of the listed equipment. Students with project
idea that require any other special equipment should talk to us.
Andriod phone (Google nexus phone) (Could be organized if students do not have their own phones)
GoPro HD Hero
Fuji Finepix Stereo Camera (Could be organized if needed)
Kinect Sensor (Could be organized if needed)
Digital Camera (Must be used in our lab)
Sony camcorder (Must be used in our lab)
PointGrey Firefly Cameras (Must be used in our lab)
