Autonomous Vision Group (AVG)
Max Planck Research Group Andreas Geiger
The Max Planck Research Group for Autonomous Vision develops mathematical models and algorithms for wholistic, efficient and robust interpretation of dynamic 3D scenes from video sequences. A particular research focus is the extraction of 3D geometry, 3D motion and semantics, as well as contextual relationships using a-priori knowledge about the scene. Furthermore, the group investigates how computationally expensive generative models can be exploited to derive efficient discriminative models (e.g., deep neural networks). The main application areas of the developed techniques are mobile robotics and autonomous driving.
