November 2011: Our group had a great ICCV in Barcelona, with a lot of interest in the papers we presented on DTAM and Double Window Optimisation (see the Publications and Videos tabs for more info!). Also the workshop on Live Dense Reconstruction with Moving Cameras organised by Richard Newcombe, Andrew Davison and George Vogiatzis was… Read more »

October 2011: Richard Newcombe has won best paper prize at ISMAR 2011 for the paper on the KinectFusion system he developed while interning at Microsoft Research Cambridge last summer. The paper is now available online (see our publications tab), and check out the video via the MSR project page or on youtube. This system has… Read more »
October 2011: Some updates: well done to Steve and Gerardo who have both just submitted their PhD theses and are awaiting their vivas; Renato just returned from a very interesting summer internship with his sponsors AMD in Austin; and we welcome new PhD student Jan Jachnik, a recent graduate from Imperial’s Mathematics Department.
September 2011: We just said farewell to Adrien Angeli who left the lab to return to Corsica and work in a start-up company there after three years as a post-doc in the group. We marked the sad occasion of his leaving with an excellent Korean meal and a rapidly-becoming-a-tradition karaoke session. We’ll miss him and… Read more »
September 2011: Ankur Handa, with the close support of Richard Newcombe and Adrien Angeli, has been investigating the role that the Legendre-Fenchel Transform can play in optimisation problems in computer vision (for example in the depth map construction component of our new DTAM system). It gives a standard procedure for setting up and solving a… Read more »
July 2011: Richard Newcombe, Andrew Davison and George Vogiatzis (Aston University) are organising a workshop on “Live Dense Reconstruction using Moving Cameras” to be held at ICCV in November this year. See the workshop website, and please consider submitting an extended abstract describing a demonstration or poster in this area.
March 2011: Gerardo Carrera and Adrien Angeli will go to ICRA in Shanghai in May to present our work on automatic calibration of a multi-camera rig. We show that a rig of two or more cameras mounted on a mobile robot can have their relative extrinsic locations automatically calibrated, even if they have no overlap… Read more »
December 2010: I am transferring more content to our Robot Vision Research Group Webpage, including now a full set of downloadable publications and most recently a videos page where there is a link to the imperialrobotvision channel on youtube.
November 2010: Dyson, with whom I’ve been working recently on robotics and vision applications, are still expanding their robotics team and are looking for another Robotics System Engineer and also a Robotics Software Engineer, a to work at their R&D centre in Malmesbury, UK. Ideally the Robotics System Engineer will be someone with post-graduate level… Read more »
October 2010: Our new Robot Vision Research Group Webpage has now gone online, and I will gradually transfer most of the research content from this page to that site. In the meantime, please take a look.
