Project Description

Augmented reality (AR) technology integrates our physical world with the virtual world, creating an enhanced environment for users. Stable and accurate large scale dynamic object registration, however, remains an unmet challenge in augmented reality (AR).

SLAM, simultaneous localisation and mapping, is a technique adapted in AR for real-time or online 3D reconstruction and point cloud matching. Achieving accurate object registration and matching is an intricate task of balancing between 3D object reconstruction quality, speed, spatial scale and scene understanding. Among many computational strategies, employing an efficient optimisation scheme is at the core of AR computational framework.

This project will be focused on studying Discriminative Optimisation (DO) scheme, a recent advanced learning-based optimisation algorithm, to overcome the challenge of large scale dynamic registration. The research team will investigate the theoretical definitions and practical use of DO in computer vision and AR with a particular focus on dynamic object tracking and reconstruction. By developing a computational framework, the project team will apply the real-time computational algorithm and theoretical framework to a range of augmented reality applications.
