|Project Title:||3D LiDAR Technology for In-Bed Monitoring Applications|
|Hosting Institution:||LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)|
|Abstract:||Object detection nowadays mainly relies on RGB (Red-Green-Blue) cameras. Captured
images are processed to extract objects’ location, movement and status. Nevertheless,
RGB cameras are sensitive to ambient conditions and/or lack of three-dimension (3D)
spatial information. Instead, state-of-the-art 3D Light Detection and Ranging sensors
(LiDAR) can provide high-resolution depth data under different ambient conditions.
Compared to the image-level processing using the RGB camera counterparts, the
centimetre-level 3D spatial information provides a higher degree of freedom of signal
processing. Objects' location, movement direction and speed can then be analysed and
extracted more accurately.
The project aims to explore state-of-the-art 3D LiDAR and related digital signal
processing technologies for object movement detection and extraction, particularly for inbed monitoring applications.
