Blade, the Vicon motion capture solution for the entertainment market is close to release and the marketing team shot a promotional video first shown at SIGGRAPH 2012 . As for the video I linked in the previous post the footage shows application scenarios and results of the real-time full-body tracking [...]
My first large project at Vicon Motion Systems is close to completion. The aim of the project was to design new real-time algorithms for performance capture that could produce main improvements in terms of number of characters allowed in the scene at the same time, robustness to occlusions, and overall quality [...]
After four years of hard work the DEXMART European project has come to an end. The project aim was to enhance the robotic capabilities in terms of dual and manipulations skills. At Vicon Motion Systems we contributed with work on hand tracking so that human data can be used by [...]
Together with Prof. Andrea Cavallaro I will be giving a tutorial on multi-target tracking at the International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) in Brussels (Tutorial day: 11 September 2011). After a brief introduction on tracking basics and object detection techniques, the tutorial will focus on data association and spatio-temporal filtering [...]
Recently, I got my hands on an Android smart-phone and I was curious about all the buzz on mobile apps, and apps programming. After some study and a lot of trial and error here it is! My first Android application, the “WiFi automator“!.
What is it for? Quite simple, I tend to use WiFi [...]
I have created a new section of the website that I will populate with information on my past and present research. I have started with a page on the use of Random Finite Sets to track multiple-targets in video sequences. I have also added a couple of interesting videos: one shows an example of [...]
My book on video tracking, co-authored by Professor Andrea Cavallaro is finally out. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental aspects of algorithm and application development for the video tracking task.
More information about the book and video tracking in general is available at www.videotracking.org.
If you find the topic interesting [...]
