3D Understanding extends the ability of computer
vision systems to understand an image from the image plane to the 3D world. It
has become more prominent with off-the-shelf 3D sensors, which have been
recently used to build large-scale RGB-D datasets. 3D Understanding addresses
problems related to 3D reconstruction, scene understanding (ex: layout
prediction), object detection, pose estimation, and others. Applications
include but are not limited to automatic inspection, robot navigation,
human-machine interaction, and object modeling.
