More details about the PhD subject:
The first task will consist in designing a specific embedded system for
the perception and tracking of local deformations in non-rigid objects.
In this way, a structured light system coupled to a customsmart camera
will be used. The main objective will be then to increase the
flexibilities of the perception system by controlling the available dofs
to improve its accuracy and robustness. The perception capabilities of
the system can be dynamically impacted by changing both its internal
state (relative position between structured light and camera, focus ...)
and its external state (spatial position of the whole system). For
example, potential occlusion of the deformable surface can be avoided by
positioning adequately the sensor apparatus. In addition, the camera
systems or the processing accuracy can be managed (increased or
decreased to manage the computational cost) by modifying the internal
state of the perception system. Sensor‐based control laws acting on the
internal/external states of the perception system will be used to fit
