PhD Position - INRIA Grenoble - shape and reflectance reconstruction of 3D scenes


"Exploitation and recovery of reflectance properties and lighting 
conditions in (dynamic) three-dimensional vision problems."

Description of scientific project:

In this project, we propose to design three-dimensional reconstruction 
algorithms which exploit and recover the reflectance properties and the 
lighting of the scene. In addition to be able to generate 
photo-realistic renderings of the reconstructed scenes, we hope to 
improve 3D reconstructions of non-Lambertian scenes.
We are also interested in theoretical aspects of the problems, since the 
use and the recovery of reflectance/lighting are two complementary and 
strongly related problems which both are based on the understanding of 
some ambiguities which yield to fundamental theoretical questions in 
this field.
If in the first time we will focus on static scenes, the final goal of 
the project is explicitly to deal with dynamic ones.

See for more details.

People and Colaborations:
-  The project will be carried out in the PERCEPTION group at INRIA 
Rhne-Alpes, under the supervision of Dr. Emmanuel Prados and Pr. Peter 
-  Colaborations: This project will be done in tight colaboration with 
the CERTIS, in particular R. Keriven, J.-P. Pons. Several stays in Paris 
are foreseeable.
-  GrImage platform: The GrImage platform of INRIA Rhne-Alpes offers an 
idea experimental setup for dealing with this problem. Also, the method 
is going to be developed and experimented in this framework. Generation 
and distribution of data would be an integral part of the project.

- PERCEPTION team ( is a computer vision
research group specialized in scene recontruction (geometry,
reflectance, illumination, movement) and based at INRIA's Rhone-Alpes
site in Grenoble in the French Alps.
- INRIA offers modern facilities and an excellent working environment
with a stimulating and innovative atmosphere.

Project Start: as early as possible .
