The Carambole project aims at constructing a virtual space-time 3D model of a growing plant and using this model to give accurate measurements about the plant motion. Of particular interest is the Averrhoa Carambola, which possesses a nutation motion of unknown origin. Targeted measurements include this nutation motion, as well as the growth along the spine of a leaf.
The master student will perform the following tasks:
- Study the relevant bibliography about non-rigid shape tracking;
- Discuss and propose a solution relevant to this problem with advisors;
- Exhibit a preliminary implementation of the proposed solution;
- Validate this solution on acquired datasets of Averrhoa Carambola and other plants. The student will have access to the Kinovis platform to perform her/his own 3D acquisitions;
- Write a Master’s thesis with details of the proposed method, bibliography and experiments.
- Master student – preferably in Computer Science or Applied Mathematics.
- Creative and highly motivated.
- Solid programming skills; the project involves programming in Python and using Matlab.
- Solid mathematics knowledge, especially in linear algebra and discrete geometry.
- Prior courses or knowledge in the areas of computer vision, mesh processing, computational geometry is a plus.
- Fluent English or French spoken.
