Generalized Symmetries and Equivalences of Geometric Data

Principal investigator: Prof. Dr. Ing. Ivana Kolingerová,
Project number: 21-08009K
Duration: 1. 3. 2021 - 29. 2. 2024
Grantor: GA ČR

Annotation: An object has symmetry if there is a transformation that maps the object onto itself (i.e., the object has an invariance under the given transformation). Symmetry detection became a challenging topic particularly in pattern recognition, computer vision, computer graphics, and geometric modelling, where it addresses problems such as object alignment, data compression, symmetrical editing, reconstruction of incomplete objects, or technical illustrations support. The proposed project plans to combine into one team three kinds of scientists: Computer scientists oriented to geometrical algorithms, computer scientists from the area of the Earth Observation data processing, and mathematicians oriented to geometric modelling and geometrical algorithms. The project goal is to bring new results according to hot topics in symmetries, mainly in generalized symmetries, exact and approximate projective equivalences; the integration of these results into semantic segmentation and object recognition enables to bring new results also in the Earth Observation data processing. Cíle projektu anglicky (vědecký záměr) Proposal of new and improvement of existing methods for: 1. Computation of generalized symmetries of geometric data 2. Computation of exact and approximate projective equivalences and symmetries 3. Integration of symmetries into semantic segmentation and object recognition in Earth Observation.

Representation and processing methods for three dimensional dynamic shapes

Principal investigator: Doc. Ing. Libor Váša, Ph.D.
Project number: 20-02154S
Duration: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2022
Grantor: GA ČR

Annotation: 3D polygon meshes are ubiquitous in many areas of science and technology. Besides static meshes, modern hardware also allows acquiring dynamic meshes, where shape and connectivity change over time. Many new applications can be built on this kind of data, however, their efficient representation and processing is an open problem that must be solved in order to exploit them to their full potential. Current approaches suffer from fundamental drawbacks, such as incorrect dealing with missing data in the case of temporary occlusion, necessity of resampling resulting in precision loss or inability to distinguish true and spurious topology changes. This project addresses these problems by employing computational techniques of discrete differential geometry. A compact model will be constructed with topology determined by analyzing the whole input sequence. The parameters of the model and its deformation will be optimized by minimizing an objective function that limits the influence of missing or misinterpreted input data. The proposed solution will be verified in multiple applications.
