Systementwicklungsprojekt (SEP): Robust Surface Reconstruction using IR-Laser-Pointer

Advisor: Nassir Navab
Supervision by: Thomas Wendler and Coskun Özgür

Abstract

Point-based surface acquisition methods commonly suffer of inaccuracy issues and artifacts, that result in non-smooth surfaces that do not match the original one sufficiently. To reduce the errors during this procedure, clever computational postprocessing methods are needed. This project focuses on improving an already existing point-based laser surface reconstruction algorithm developed at CAMP to ensure the smoothness of the acquired surface, while minimizing the presence of outliers.

Requirements

  • Basic knowledge: C++, knowledge of OpenGL (CG) and QT is of advantage.
  • Interest in medical technology (You will work most of the time at Klinikum rechts der Isar at NaNuLab)
  • Interdisciplinary Teamwork (Medicine, Physics, Computer Science)

What you get out of it

  • Experience with different exciting research fields in computer science: Augmented Reality, Computer Graphics, Visualization, Software Engineering
  • Knowledge about clinical/surgical workflow, medical technology
  • Work within an young international and interdisciplinary team
  • Finally the "Schein"
