Interactive Computational Imaging for Deformable Object Analysis

  • Robot interaction as part of the imaging process
  • Visual material analysis: discriminating objects based on how they behave
  • Motion magnification for stiff and fragile objects

Image-based visual servoing with light field cameras

  • Exploits depth information in the light field without explicit depth estimation
  • Derivation of light field image Jacobians
  • Demonstration on robotic arm using a MirrorCam light field camera
  • Outperforms monocular and stereo methods for narrow-FOV and occluded scenes
