New Video: Mapping with two Depth-Cameras

I put a new video into the Multimedia section that demonstrates the real time insertion of point cloud data of two cameras into the GPU Octree. Simultaneously raycasting is carried out to determine the free space regions.

Thank you for attending the IAS-13 tutorial

Dear participants of our tutorial at the IAS-13 in Padova,

I hope you enjoyed your conference! Thank you for your interest in our software and the nice discussion during and after the tutorial.
Many of you requested the slides from my presentation. I did not forget that, but I have to wait for the FZIs clearance before I can upload them.
Also I am still working on the upload of the Code to a Code-Hoster.

Until then, you can find a little how-to in the Tutorial Section, on how to compile and launch the presented Demo-Program.
I hope to get your feedback after you tested the Code at home.

Best,
Andreas

Upcoming Tutorial

Dear participants of the GPU-Voxels Tutorial at IAS 2014!

We are pleased to announce a brand new version of the library that we were working on during the last months.
Lots of time was put into restructuring the code and into adding a high-level interface to make it easy to use the power of GPUs for collision detection.

Here is a list of prerequisites, if you want to try our software on your own computer:

  • You need a 64 Bit operation system, preferably Ubuntu Linux
  • CUDA >= 5.5 and an according NVidia driver
  • Your GPU must have a Compute-Capability of 2.0 or greater
  • If you want to play with live data from an RGBD Sensor, you will need the PCL and OpenNI
  • To play with your own robot model, bring an STL Model of it
  • Also for voxelizing your own models, get a copy of Binvox (www.cs.princeton.edu/~min/binvox/ or http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~min/binvox/download.php?id=4)

Unfortunately the software is not yet available on a Code Hosting Platform, but we are working on that. Till that point you will receive a copy at the conference.

See you on Tuesday, July, 15th in the DONATELLO (TTU7) conference room from 14:00-18:00!

Hello world!

This place is about an open-source Software-Package that deals with real-time evaluation of point cloud data for the purpose of Robot Motion Planning, based on the massive parallel computational power of GPUs.

As soon as the software is publically available, we will add a forwarding to a Code-Hosting service.

This Website is under heavy construction. Please come back after April, 1st to find more information. Thanks!
