Special Issue on Visual Understanding and Applications with RGB-D Cameras


The prevalence of affordable RGB-D cameras, such as Microsoft's Kinect and
ASUS's Xtion Pro Live Sensors, is driving a revolution of the landscape of
computer vision and vision related research. The pixel-level depth and
visual (RGB) information provided by a RGB-D camera not only enables robust
vision applications but also opens up new research problems and
opportunities across a wide range of areas including 3D perception,
robotics, human machine interactions, and intelligent surveillance. Since
the first release of Microsoft Kinect sensors in November 2010, we have
witnessed a rapid growth of research in visual understanding and
applications with RBG-D cameras.

The aim of this special issue is to solicit the state-of-the-art approaches
and technical solutions in the area of visual understanding and applications
using RGB-D cameras. The issue will provide a convincing forum for
researchers and practitioners to disseminate their latest research results.


This special issue covers all aspects of visual understanding and
applications using RGB-D cameras. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Sensor technology, calibration and data pre-processing
- Shape analysis, matching and spatial inference
- Depth fusion, 3D reconstruction and modelling
- Object description, detection, tracking and recognition
- Human detection, tracking and activity understanding
- Gesture recognition and biometrics
- Human-machine interactions
- Scene understanding and segmentation
- Navigation, localization, SLAM and semantic mapping
- Augmented reality
- Annotation and retrieval of RGB-D data
- Perception for mobile manipulation in robotics
- Semantics for long-term operation in dynamic environments
- Empirical studies and benchmark datasets
- Industrial applications
