The environments in the use cases of CeTI are dynamic und need to be updated on the fly through newly developed acquisition techniques. Furthermore, fast communication of detailed 3D information to the user is an essential building block of CeTI use cases and provided through augmented reality glasses among other modalities.
    The task for this position is twofold. On the one hand, the realisation of a fast 3D acquisition pipeline based on the portable 3D sensors developed in TP2 that can build and update a consistent 3D world model incrementally. On the other hand real-time rendering approaches will be developed that allow low latency rendering of detailed 3D information to the augmented reality classes developed in TP2.
