Religion 3D on the radio

Today I participated as a guest speaker on Radio RSI-2 speaking about how to use our virtualisation technology to replicate religious objects. You can find the podcast here (unfortunately it is in italian...). This research aims to understand whether 3D reconstructed objects can carry their own holy meaning also in virtual worlds. Can we use REPLICATE technology to enable geographically distant communities experience religion in Virtual Reality? Can 3D reconstruction be used as a means of sharing religious symbols among communities? These are some of the questions we are trying to answer. A brief description of the project can be found here.

Oral presentation at CVMP

Today I will present the paper we did in collaboration with the ETH Computer Vision Lab of Luc Van Gool at CVMP. The paper is titled "Cloud-based collaborative 3D reconstruction using smartphones" (F. Poiesi, A. Locher, P. Chippendale, E. Nocerino, F. Remondino and L. Van Gool) and you can find it at this link. There are also a video to give you a taste of the results we obtained and a dataset to test your algorithm on our data.

REPLICATE Milestone M18 Video

As part of the H2020 REPLICATE I coordinated and edited the video for month 18 milestone. This video gives an overview of pipeline of the project and some preliminary results.

New job in TeV FBK

Today I started a new research adventure in Technologies of Vision (Fondazione Bruno Kessler) working under the H2020 project REPLICATE. I will be working on 3D reconstruction from mobile phones, and Augmented and Virtual Reality. Stay tuned for new interesting publications.

ECCV Workshop on Benchmarking Multi-target Tracking 2016

My paper titled "Online multi-target tracking with strong and weak detections (link)" (R. Sanchez Matilla, F. Poiesi and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted in the European Conference on Computer Vision Workshop (ECCV - Benchmarking Multi-target Tracking: MOTChallenge 2016). We participated to the challenge with a new multi-object tracker based on Probability Hypothesis Density Particle Filter (we named it EAMTT). At submission date EAMTT had the best online tracking results overall in MOT15 and MOT16 among the public trackers. Today (29/08) EAMTT is still ranked first in MOT15 and is ranked second in MOT16.

Oral presentation at BMVC

My paper titled "Detection of fast incoming objects with a moving camera (link)" (F. Poiesi and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted as oral presentation in British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC). Have a look to the project page for videos (and soon code!).

Paper accepted in IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology

My paper titled "Support Vector Motion Clustering (link)" (I.A. Lawal, F. Poiesi, D. Anguita and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted in IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (TCSVT).

Best online multi-target tracker on MOT challenge

We recently submitted our results to the Multi Object Tracking challenge and we ranked as first with our new Probability Hypothesis Density Particle Filter (PHD_PF) in the category of online trackers (second overall). Check the results out at these links 1, 2. Merry Christmas!

Presentation at London Big-O Meetup

I have been invited to present my work about formations of flying cameras to film a moving target at the London Big-O Meetup on Mon 9th (link1, link2). Just RSVP yourself if you want to attend. Before my presentation there will be Amrith presenting his work about conceptual design of Unmanned Aircraft Systems that considers communication systems, payload systems, propulsion system, avionics architecture, and many others. Presentations will start at 18.30.

Paper accepted at IROS 2015

My paper titled "Distributed vision-based flying cameras to film a moving target (link)" (F. Poiesi and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted to the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2015 held in Hamburg, Germany.

Multi-target trajectory 3D visualiser is ONLINE

The alpha web-version of the 3D visualiser for multi-target tracking results is online! If you like, there is a 2-minute video on Youtube to briefly understand what I am talking about. You can upload your stuff and the visualiser will help you analysing, debugging and showing your results for scientific reports or papers. The visualiser appeared on this paper. Just drop me an email if you are interested in it, I will give you further details and make an account for you. Believe me that the visualiser will change your life :)

Paper accepted at ISSNIP 2015

My paper titled "Self-positioning of a team of flying smart cameras (link)" (F. Poiesi and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted to the IEEE 10th International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (ISSNIP) 2015 held in Singapore.


I am going to be in Berlin (GE) from the 9th to the 14th March attending the Artemis Co-summit 2015 (10/03-11/03) and VISIGRAPP 2015 (11/03-14/03). I will be at the booth of COPCAMS during the Co-summit and at VISIGRAPP presenting the newly published 3D visualiser for tracking results (link).

Paper accepted at IVAPP 2015

My paper titled "MTTV: an interactive trajectory visualization and analysis tool (link)" (F. Poiesi and A. Cavallaro) has been accepted to the 6th International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP) 2015 held in Berlin, Germany.

New website

Welcome to my new website! I will do my best to keep it updated. In Home you will find all my recent activities and news. In Publications the list of my published works. In Data I will organise links to datasets that could be useful for different applications. In About me a brief description of who I am. I hope you will find this website useful :) I currently tested the website on Chrome, FireFox and Safari. So please use these browsers to make sure you have the best view of it.
