It is our immense pleasure to announce the beginning of a new PCL Code Sprint sponsored by NVidia: PCL-NVCS!
PCL Code Sprints are intended to rapidly advance the capabilities of the Point Cloud Library in a certain area/subject by offering stipends to talented student developers and pairing them with knowledgeable mentors for several months of accelerated software development. Projects will run for an initial period of 3 months, and all of the code produced will be BSD-licensed open source.
For this spring's PCL-NVidia Code Sprint, we have identified the following important areas for further development in PCL, and we are therefore searching for outstanding candidates (and mentors) to work on the following projects:
- Human Body tracking: The high-level purpose of this project is to implement and analyze various techniques for extracting humans body poses in dense 3D data at high speed with CUDA. The applications are numerous, from gaming to gesture interfacing. The code sprint component will be a focused implementation that produces fast and reusable code. Some possible code sprint project specifications…
