Summary: The project's goal is to develop and test procedures and algorithms for the fast three-dimensional identification and mensuration of inaccessible objects on the basis of a semantically specified user query. The sensor platform is a lightweight autonomously flying drone. It uses the visual information from cameras for navigation, obstacle detection, exploration and object acquisition. Our group deals with the efficient representation, management and visualization of 3D surface data that gets captured incrementally. This data will be integrated into a global 3D map. This task can be divided into three parts:
