  • Title: Reconstruction of 3D structure and situational awareness by fusing image sequences with lidar data
  • Short description:

    ABB Crane systems today apply a great number of cameras that capture projections of the three
    dimensional surrounding to the container cranes under operation. LIDAR data is also being collected in
    several cases. Fusing these two measurement modalities would possibly yield an aggregate data that
    would benefit from both the strong point of the information rich camera image and the robust depth
    estimate of the LIDAR. One way of fusing such data would be to formulate a model representation that
    could be updated with the measurement of the image and lidar frame as they become available. The
    suggested theme for this master thesis work is to investigate the details of such reconstruction.
