  Data Fusion in Earth Observation
Data fusion is the process of combining data from multiple sources to produce more accurate, reliable, and complete information than can be obtained from any individual data source. In the context of Earth Observation, data fusion can be used to combine data from different sensors, modalities, and resolutions to produce more accurate and reliable information about the Earth's surface.

  Neural fields for multi-view 3D reconstruction using noisy camera poses
Recent approaches for multi-view 3D reconstruction achieve good results by using learned representations for the geometry and appearance of the object. One limitation of these methods is the requirement of good camera poses. In this project we investigate new self-calibrating 3D reconstruction methods using neural fields that can work with a noisy set of camera pose initialisations.

The aim of this project is to design a lightweight detection network architecture that: (a) allows usage of higher resolution input, and (b) is sufficiently small to fit into edge devices. The candidate will work under the mentorship of AI engineers. The resulting architecture would be deployed on smart sensor devices.

  Computer vision algorithm application for insect rearing optimization
Through object recognition and tracking, this project aims to understand and appraise larval population behavior per container in real-time. The main goal is to monitor the larval growth and maturity stage from the visible individuals in the surface and assess the need of additional feed (identifying degree of substrate exhaustion) for each container.

  Automated Video Edition Using Representations From Collaborative Experts
We will investigate methods enabling Automated Video Edition (AVE). The AVE system will select which among a set of synchronized video shots should be selected, in order to create a video of a pre-defined duration that combines the contributions of different shots. The work will build on top of an existing attention-based automated video editor and explore the use of collaborative experts.

  Lane Detection for Automated Driving, a Reference Perception System.
Development of algorithms for lane detection and tracking from images and point clouds. The algorithms should combine information from different sensors and timestamps to achieve more robust results. The system will be integrated in a reference perception system that will be used to evaluate lane detection system and related ADAS functions (LDW, ALK, ...) on commercial vehicles

  Lightweight Monocular 3D Vehicle Detection
This project deals with the design and training of an object detection model able to produce 3D bounding-boxes for different types of vehicles in monocular images. Taking inspiration from the CenterNet model, we want to obtain a lightweight 3D object detection model that can run in real time in low-resource environments.

  Neural point features for automatic wind turbine inspection
Blade defects are detected through images captured in wind turbine inspections, so they can be repaired in due time. This project focuses on obtaining meaningful deep-based image features that can be easily distinguishable between them, so we can use them to stitch the images and create a panoramic/mosaic or 3D model, just to name a few. The project will be done in IRI-UPC (Barcelona).

  Identification of product attributes by computer vision
The project consists of identifying product attributes from photos. We have a dataset of product photos with associated metadata (packaging, brand, barcode, ...) and we want to automate the identification of these attributes for the photos of new products entering the system.
