Students successfully completing the module should be able to:
The course introduces basics of geometry processing covering important aspects of acquisition, analysis, and manipulation of 3D data. The course will consist of a mix of theory and applications to real-world scenarios.
The course intends to introduce students to the various stages of a typical geometry processing pipeline. With recent growth in popularity of 3D acquisition devices and modeling frameworks, geometry processing is increasing becoming important in a diverse set of applications including city planning, architectural geometry, reverse engineering, interactive modeling, etc.
Topics will include but not restricted to mesh representations, mesh smoothing, remeshing, mesh reconstruction, and shape analysis. Necessary topics in differential geometry will be covered in the course.
- Surface representations
- Local and global registration (ICP, branch-and-bound)
- 3D acquisition using laser scanners
- Structure from motion based acquisition
- Introduction to curves and surface
Mesh Smoothing and Decimation
Parametrization and Remeshing
Laplace Beltrami Operator
Method of Instruction
Lectures and lab classes.
The course has the following assessment components:
- Coursework (50%)
- Individual / Group Project (40%)
- Oral Examination (10%)
To pass this course, students must:
- Achieve a mark of 50% or more from all sections combined
- Obtain a minimum mark of 40% in both the Coursework and the Individual/Group Project.
