Undergrad Research Project - 3D Reconstruction of Accident Scenes

Fall 2015

Student
Aaron Perley
Advisor
John Dolan
Project description

The goal of this project is to learn how to use ordinary cameras to do 3D reconstruction of accident scenes. First Aaron will learn how to use various structure-from-motion (SfM) programs and software to manipulate point clouds and meshes. He will investigate the best ways to acquire the images and suppress unwanted effects like specular reflections. Furthermore he will test methods to accomplish tasks relevant to accident investigation, e.g. determining the difference between a crushed car and an intact car.
