Dr. Zarpalas and Dr. Daras are Guest Editors of Sensors Special Issue “Sensors Fusion for Human-Centric 3D Capturing”

Dr. Dimitrios Zarpalas and Dr. Petros Daras are guest editors of the upcoming Sensors special issue titled “Sensors Fusion for Human-Centric 3D Capturing”   This Special Issue tries to capture the recent advances in 3D capture technology by fusing data from multiple sensors (be it cameras, inertial, infrared or depth sensors) to produce high-quality 3D human representations (i.e., 3D motion, shape, appearance, performance, and activity). It invites contributions that address multi-sensor and multi-modal information fusion with the aim of capturing…

Best Demo Award MMM 2019

Over the past couple of years, Virtual and Augmented Reality have been at the forefront of the Mixed Reality development scene, whereas Augmented Virtuality has significantly lacked behind. Widespread adoption however requires efficient low-cost platforms and minimalistic interference design. In this work we present Space Wars, an end-to-end proof of concept for an elegant and rapid-deployment Augmented VR platform. Through the engaging experience of Space Wars, we aim to demonstrate how digital games, as forerunners of innovative technology, are perfectly…
