Daniel Canelhas

I am a PhD student in robot vision, interested in 3D mapping, camera tracking, optimization and machine learning. I like to make art, write code, play music, do sports, read science-fiction, science-fact, play video-games, and tell bad jokes.

SDF tracker : a parallel algorithm for on-line pose estimation and scene reconstruction from depth images. Or, alternatively, my Master's thesis

3D reconstruction using the SDF-Tracker algorithm, estimating camera pose and fusing depth images into a dense 3D model on the CPU (code)

An Eigenshapes Approach to Compressed Signed Distance Fields and Their Utility in Robot Mapping

Mapping a large environment by shifting the reconstruction volume and encoding exiting voxels as their eigen-shapes descriptors.

From Feature Detection in Truncated Signed Distance Fields to Sparse Stable Scene Graphs.

For really large scenes you might want an (even) sparser representation. Sparse Stable Scene Graphs (SSSG) represents the dense 3d model as a graph of spatially interconnected feature
