Augmented Vision

Prof. Didier Stricker, DFKI Kaiserslautern

Abstract:

It is has long been understood that automated systems aiming to assist or interact with human activity need to have a degree of understanding of human behaviour in order to be effective. Actions and responses need to align with our expectations and information needs to be presented in a manner which reflects our own perceptions. What is less well understood is how that understanding of behaviour is to be obtained.
In this talk we will show the very first work undertaken at DFKI in the department „augmented vision“. We focus first in the capturing technology and look more precisely at head-, hand-tracking as well as object detection and scene reconstruction. The goal is to build a digital representation of real and dynamic scene, including human executing their tasks and interacting with the surrounding. First results involving visual-inertial tracking, multiple inertial on-body sensors, fisheye as well as full spherical HDR-images will be presented and discussed in relations with achieved quality and required computing resources.

Zur Person:

Didier Stricker is member of the Management Board of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) in Kaiserslautern where he leads the new research department „Augmented Vision“. He is appointed as Professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Kaiserslautern, where he holds the chair "Augmented Vision". From 2002 to June 2008 Didier Stricker lead the department "Virtual and Augmented Reality" at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics (Fraunhofer IGD) in Darmstadt, Germany.
