Exhibition / Demos
In addition to the regular conference programme, the ICVS 2007 will feature an exhibition / demo session. This is a unique opportunity to give and to gain insights into the performance of current state-of-the-art vision systems and to obtain a feeling of how they work in the real world, in contrast to a technical description of the involved algorithms.
Participants are invited to exhibit vision systems (these may be research prototypes, demonstrators, or also products already available on the market) or to display video presentations about the vision systems they are currently working on and how they behave in real-world environments.
Interested companies may also present their demonstration systems together with a short description of the presented product and their logo on this web page.
If you are interested in participating in the exhibition, please contact the conference organisers at: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Friday, 23rd live demonstrations will be presented in the main hall of Bielefeld University, situated close to the ICVS lecture hall (H15). The exihibation may be visited the whole day, particularly during lunch or the two poster sessions from 12:45 to 14:00 and from 15:45 to 17:00.
The Demos / Exhibitions
z-Snapper 3D camera
Dr. Roland Höfling, ViALUX GmbH
Recording 3D data of scenes with speed and resolution comparable to CCD cameras is a long term desire in computer vision. ViALUX has developed a fast 3D camera based upon full-field triangulation. Speeding up the projection of sequences of light patterns is possible by the use of the DMD DiscoveryTM digital micromirror device of Texas Instruments. ViALUX supports this MEMS device with its own electronics that enables for 3D frame rates of 25 Hz for the VGA resolution and 40 Hz for the ½ VGA resolution, respectively. Each VGA 3D frame represents 300,000 independent measurements of x,y,z coordinates on the scene surface. Multiple 3D cameras can be combined. The z-Snapper is one product in the line of ViALUX systems for 3D measurement and inspection by optical means. ViALUX products are successfully placed on the worldwide market for a variety of applications.
3D Scene Segmentation and Object Tracking in Multiocular Image Sequences
Joachim Schmidt, Bielefeld University
Reliable and close to real-time face and body detection is a basic ability for any Vision Based Interface. This demonstration shows the integration of temporal coherence and persistence about the human face, achieving a robust and close to real-time multiresolution face detector. With using explicit knowledge about the human body, face information can be used as a "seed" for initializing a predefined body model. The presented system offers automatic (but not yet real-time) learning of a skin color model, body part segmentation and generation of body pose hypotheses.
Bridging Web Applications and Perceptual User Interfaces
Ingo Lütkebhohle, Bielefeld University
In public spaces, mouse and keyboard are often inappropriate and we will demonstrate an alternative: Controlling an application (shown on a large display) through gestures only. For the ICVS 2007, the focus of the demo will be on the "Web Interface Robot" that analyzes and interacts with existing web applications.
