Depth Map Refinement

In this project, we propose a new method to enhance noisy or low-resolution depth maps using high-resolution color images. Our method is based on sample selection and refinement in conjunction with multi-lateral filtering. 

Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM)

In this project, we propose a robust method for camera tracking and surface mapping using a handheld RGB-D camera which is effective in challenging situations such as fast camera motion or geometrically featureless scenes.

3D Reconstruction

In this project, we propose a novel approach for realistic surface geometry reconstruction using RGB-D images. Our approach based on KinectFusion utilizes high quality RGB images for extracting additional information for realistic visual reconstruction and recovers raw surface geometry.
