Speaker Stefan Seipel
Title Visual computing for resource management
Abstract I will discuss how image analysis and computer graphics can contribute in the planning of renewable energy and in monitoring of greenhouse gases. One case study will illustrate how the reconstruction of the visual hull of a 3D object can be used to estimate the volume of gases leaking from landfills. In a second case study I will show how the estimation of solar insolation could be solved using texture mapping in order to support interactive positioning of solar panels. These applied research projects will be used to discuss challenges and opportunities for interdisciplinary research in computer graphics, human-computer-interaction and image analysis.
