Workshop 3: IEEE ISMAR 2012 workshop on tracking methods and applications (TMA)

Daniel Wagner, Jonathan Ventura, Gerhard Reitmayr, Hideo Saito, Selim Benhimane
2012 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality - Arts, Media, and Humanities (ISMAR-AMH)  
The focus of this workshop is on presenting, discussing and demonstrating recent tracking methods and applications that work well in practice and that show some superiority over state-of-the-art methods. Rather than focusing on pure novelty, this workshop encourages presentations that concentrate on complete systems and integrated approaches. The TMA workshop looks at pose tracking from an end-to-end point of view. Practical tracking solutions for AR are usually complex systems that combine

The fields include computer vision, other sensing modalities (e.g. GPS, inertial, etc.) and systems issues (calibration, estimation, fusion, etc.). Council (ERC) Starting Grant. The group's work continues to focus on the challenges in real-time, real-world 3D vision, expanding on the core problems of localisation and mapping with cameras towards a more general real-time model-based scene understanding agenda. The wide applicability of this research in robotics and beyond into areas like augmented reality, gaming, mobile devices and automotive has been proven by strong industrial interest and the group has ongoing links with companies in several different sectors. Recent work has been recognized with best paper awards at ICRA 2010 and ISMAR 2011, and the best demonstration award at ICCV 2011. file:1 IIUsers/megh/Documentsl Archive/2012/ISMARldllamh/OOO _ workshop3 .txt[12-11-27 II :23: 15 AM]
