|Abstract : Computational Imaging is an innovative technique where non-traditional image data sensing approaches (coded apertures, multi-aperture imaging, micro-lens arrays, sparse data mixing, …) provide multi-dimensional information (spatial, angular, colorimetric, …) that has to be computationally processed to fully comprehend the underlying 3D scene information. Such 3D Light Field cameras are the appropriate candidate for enabling 3D photo-realistic rendering (glasses-free 3D multiscopic displays, holography, 3D microscopy, …).
The PhD student will - in collaboration with external partners, who are experts in hardware imaging systems and mathematical signal conditioning - develop an integrated system with GPU-accelerated signal processing for 3D Light Field acquisition (with integrated depth estimation, light rays interpolation, …), covering specific 3D application demands. A strong background in image processing and C/C++ programming is a pre-requisite. Expertise in Light Fields and/or CUDA/OpenCL is an added value.
