RGB-D Dense Point Cloud Mapping

Project Description

The goal of this research is to create dense 3D point cloud maps of building interiors using newly available inexpensive depth cameras. We use a reference design that is equivalent to the sensor in the Microsoft Kinect. These cameras provide depth information aligned with image pixels from a standard camera. We refer to this as RGB-D data (for Red, Green, Blue plus Depth).
