3D Reconstruction in Project Tango
What if your smartphone could understand the 3D space and motion as as we do? Imagine what applications this would enable: Augmented reality games that play directly in the space around you, professional applications such as building and object scanning, indoor navigation, and robotics.
Google's Project Tango provides visual-inertial 6-DOF motion estimation and dense 3D reconstruction in real-time and on-board the device. In my talk, I will give a technical introduction to the hardware and algorithms underlying Tango, including visual-inertial odometry, SLAM, loop closure detection global re-localization and 3D reconstruction. During my talk, I will show several live demos on a Tango tablet.
