PCL-SRCS kickstart!

PCL-SRCS is ready to start! The sprint will cover 3D algorithmic work for surface reconstruction and large scale mapping for PCL. Our developers are:

PCL and Sandia Robotics Code Sprint 2012

It is our immense pleasure to announce the beginning of a new PCL Code Sprint sponsored by Sandia Robotics group: PCL-SRCS!

PCL Code Sprints are intended to rapidly advance the capabilities of the Point Cloud Library in a certain area/subject by offering stipends to talented student developers and pairing them with knowledgeable mentors for several months of accelerated software development. Projects will run for an initial period of 3 months, and all of the code produced will be BSD-licensed open source.

For this spring's PCL-Sandia Robotics Code Sprint, we have identified the following important areas for further development in PCL, and we are therefore searching for outstanding candidates (and mentors) to work on the following projects:

  1. Kinect Fusion extensions to large scale environments: the purpose of this project is to extend techniques such as Kinect Fusion to larger scale environments with CUDA. A goal would be to combine it with a segmentation algorithm in order to be able to create specific object models. CUDA/GPGPU programming knowledge is…
