PCL Tutorial at CGLibs 2013

When: June 3-5, 2013

Where: Smart Libraries for Computer Graphics Summer School (CGLibs) 2013, Pisa, Italy.

Course Description:

This short course aims at introducing the main aspects related to the Point Cloud library. First, we will briefly introduce the goals, the activities, the industrial partners and the community related to the library. This will be done also by pointing at some of the most common application scenarios for which PCL is being deployed by its community. Successively, we will give an outlook on the main modules being developed, highlighting the theoretical background, functionalities and design choices of a few of them and illustrating the large set of tools and state-of-the-art algorithms currently present in PCL for advanced 3D processing. Finally, a whole object modeling pipeline will be presented, showing how the components can be put together in a highly customizable pipeline, that allows for experimentation and rapid deployment.
