Brown University School of Engineering graduate student Fatih Calakli has won the Advanced Surface Reconstruction PCL Robotics Code Sprint 2012, sponsored by Sandia National Labs.
Fatih is a student of Professor Gabriel Taubin whose group has made extremely important contributions to surface reconstruction, 3D compression, and object recognition.
The goal of this project is to make our state-of-the-art surface reconstruction algorithms widely available as part of the Point Cloud Library (PCL).
The Point Cloud Library is a stand alone, large scale, open project for 3D point cloud processing which is getting widespread support and attention from industry and academia. For more information, please go to: http://pointclouds.org/
