3D modeling and rendering
3D modeling from images can be seen as a basic technology, with many uses and applications in various domains. Some applications only require geometric information (measuring, visual servoing, navigation) while more and more rely on more complete models (3D models with texture maps or other models of appearance) that can be rendered in order to produce realistic images. Some of our projects directly address potential applications in virtual studios or “edutainment” (e.g. virtual tours), and many others may benefit from our scientific results and software.
