PhD Studentship in Geometric Modelling of 3D Point-Cloud Data
School of EECS, Queen Mary, University of London
Applications are invited, for a funded PhD studentship, to undertake
research into 3D point-cloud representations of objects and scenes. All
nationalities are eligible to apply for this position, which will start
in September/October 2014.
The project will be concerned with modelling data from outdoor
laser-scanners and indoor depth-cameras, as well as from multiple-view
reconstructions. The primary objective is to develop new geometric
representations of 3D point-clouds, based on recent work in applied
mathematics and statistics. These representations will be designed to
assist robotic scene-understanding and navigation.
The project will be based in the new interdisciplinary Centre for
Intelligent Sensing at QMUL (http://cis.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/). The student
will be supervised by Dr Miles Hansard and Prof Andrea Cavallaro (EECS),
and will collaborate with Prof James Brasington (Geography).
Previous experience of working on SLAM / robot-mounted depth-cameras
would be useful.
