Up to date 3D sensors revolutionized the acquisition of environmental information. 3D vision systems of self-driving vehicles can be used not only for safe navigation, but also for real time mapping of the environment, detecting and analyzing static, and dynamic objects and scene elements. The new generation geo-information systems (GIS) store extremely detailed 3D maps about the cities, consisting of dense 3D point clouds, registered camera images and semantic metadata. Automatic filtering and processing of medical 3D data (MR, CT or ultrasound) with rapidly evolving quality and resolution is becoming increasingly important nowadays. The use of digital tools is also playing an increasing role in cultural heritage preservation, automated scene analysis and model reconstruction from images and laser scanning data is a key task for archaeological research. The main goal of the research and development work in the Machine Perception and Geo-information Computing Laboratory is to obtain a holistic interpretation of our environment by automatically processing and fusing the measurements of sensors that record spatial information for different applications. Our research is carried out in cooperation with PPKE ITK and the SZTAKI Machine Perception Research Laboratory.
