We are happy to announce that the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques (IPM) and Open Perception (OP) are partnering for the purpose of Point Cloud Library (PCL) development.
Fraunhofer IPM develops tailor-made measuring techniques, systems and materials for industry. The Railway Measurement Group within IPM is developing advanced optical measuring systems for monitoring the condition of rail and road infrastructure. The group has been specialized on laser-based sensor systems, e.g. high speed laser scanner unit.
To capture the environment of a railway track, trains which are equipped with laser scanners are used. A new conceptual design developed by IPM extends the common setup by scanners which are capturing data ahead in driving direction. IPM selected the Point Cloud Library (PCL) project as their algorithmic core for optimizing the operating process and their software infrastructure.
For this task we are looking for two master students. Please see the images/PDFs below for more detailed information.
