During the months of August and September, four University of Salzburg students are working on a smartphone-based solution for 3D rapid mapping. In this "Summer Hackademy", the students try to extract a high-density point cloud from a series of images from uncalibrated cameras ("Structure from Motion") in a joint effort at the intersection of Geoinformatics and Computer Science.
The highly skilled and ambitious students working on the project are
Clemens Havas, Nikolai Janakiev, Jakob Miksch and Salman Muhammad,
supervised by Dr. Bernd Resch and Prof. Dr. Thomas Blaschke.
The long-term goal is to develop a system for indoor navigation through
the identification of key points in the point cloud by an intelligent
