3D Murale

An international team of multimedia content creators, led by Brunel University and with support from the European Union, was developing and using 3D Multimedia tools to measure, reconstruct and visualise archaeological ruins in virtual reality. The ancient city of Sagalassos in Turkey was used as a test case. Within this project a virtual excavation documentation … Continue reading 3D Murale

CASANDRA

Interdisciplinary projects between the field of art history and digital image analysis brought new aspects in both of the fields. While art historians benefit from new objective analysis methods and improved efficiency, for technicians a new field of application and research was opened. In this project a computer aided system to analyze underdrawings in medieval … Continue reading CASANDRA

COINS

The COINS project aims at providing a substantial contribution to the fight against illegal trade and theft of coins which appears to be a major part of the illegal antiques market. The project will develop standardized inventories by defining a domain ontology based on CIDOC-CRM, the standard ontology for Cultural Heritage, and a multilingual thesaurus. … Continue reading COINS

Deep Green

Correct identification of tree species from leaves, needles and bark is a task which requires expertise. With increasing capabilities of mobile devices, like resolution of the integrated cameras and more computing power these devices can be used to take over this task. Within a project with the “Österreichischen Bundesforste AG” (“Austrian Federal Forests”) the main … Continue reading Deep Green

SCIBA

The goal of SCIBA (Smart Cameras for Intelligent Behavior Analysis) is to develop robust techniques for the recognition of unexpected behavior of crowds and individuals in complex situations. The goal encloses the following aims: a. Combine statistical features with tracking of individuals. Statistical features are more robust for a global decision of unexpected behavior with … Continue reading SCIBA

CAPRI

Humans are dealing with 3D object detection and recognition in their everyday life. In computer vision applications, 3D information is often gathered by using multiple cameras. When multiple cameras having an overlapping view and a wide baseline are used it is not possible to reconstruct an observed object based on corresponding points because such features … Continue reading CAPRI
