Practical Imaging and Inversion of Transient Light Transport

Project description

The novel imaging technique of an optical echo for practical use

Transient imaging (TI) is revolutionising the computer graphics and computer vision market. It facilitates the detection of objects through information from the temporal domain at pico- and nano-second-resolution, and the capturing, reconstructing or simulating of light transport. This makes it possible to show movies of light in motion, see around corners, detect objects in highly-scattering media or infer material properties from a distance. But due to its high-end arrangements, TI has so far been used only in laboratories. The EU-funded ECHO project aims to develop a novelty camera system by introducing computational TI (CTI). It will allow researchers to distinguish and explore the ‘optical echoes’ of objects through lightweight capture of transient data in real time, offering many advanced solutions and enabling numerous applications.
