  6. Computational Methods for Dynamic Scene Reconstruction

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: N16AT017

    Reconstruction of dynamic scenes is at the limits of the state of the art. It is still challenging to accurately reconstruct models in static scenes. Dynamic scenes add a list of challenges that further complicate the problem:separating the dynamic objects from the motion created by the camera motionMorphological changes to the dynamic object itself. Not only is the system moving, but it is actual ...

  9. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...
