Call for participation

Industrial Applications with Large-Scale 3D Point Cloud Processing

Tutorial at IEEE ICRA 2015,
Seattle, WA, USA



Recently, 3D point cloud processing became popular in the robotics
community due to the appearance of the Microsoft Kinect camera. The
emerging field of 3D laser scanning advances, too. The objective of the
tutorial is to present state of the art 3D scanning technologies, recent
developments for efficient processing of large scale 3D point clouds,
and how it is applied in industrial applications. To achieve these
objectives, the tutorial is structured along industrial applications
examples. To gain hands-on experiences on processing large-scale 3D
point clouds, we interleave presentations, software demonstrations and
software trials. Participants are requested to bring their Linux, MacOS
or Windows laptops.

The increasing need for rapid characterization and quantification of
complex environments has created challenges for data analysis. This
critical need comes from many important areas, including industrial
automation, architecture, agriculture, and the construction or
maintenance of tunnels and mines. 3D CAD models are necessary for
factory design, facility management, urban and regional planning. While
precise 3D data is nowadays reliably obtained by using professional 3D
laser scanners, efficient, large-scale 3D point clouds processing
software must be available for these applications. The tutorial will
focus on 3D point cloud processing in the following areas:

- 3D underground mine mapping
- Factory digitalization
- Tunnel inspection
- Urban 3D modeling
- Workpiece verification
- ...
