News

  • I accepted the Research Summer Intern Offer from Microsoft Research AI and will cooperate with Dr. Jiang, see you in Seatle. Wish to share more ideas in most advanced CV area. Also check our latest work on Omni-stereo camera system, it is a lot of fun Details from Carlos Jaramillo. Show our appreciation to MTA.

  • Just released the dataset for paper: Semantic Metric 3D Reconstruction for Concrete Inspection (Authors are: Liang Yang, Bing Li, Wei Li, Biao Jiang, and Jizhong Xiao), 2018 CVPRW. Please check here Code and Data. Also check here for our previous work: concrete structure inspection Code and Data.

  • Our paper “Semantic Metric 3D Reconstruction for Concrete Inspection (Authors are: Liang Yang, Bing Li, Wei Li, Biao Jiang, and Jizhong Xiao)” has been accepted by IEEE CVPR2018 Workshop, see you at Salt Lake.


  • Exciting News!!! > Our Project – WIND-RIDER, Got $150, 000 investment!!!. – Blade inspection robots for wind-farm owners and OEM directors-of-operations to reduce blade replacement costs, where we perform inspection using GPR, camera etc with deep neural network algorithm!! I am the Technical Lead, and we are about to fly, if you have interest to work with our team, shoot me an email.

Projects

Visual Odometry with a Single-Camera Stereo Omnidirectional System

This work aims to provide a robust and easy access solution of scale-visual-positioning

Deep Learning based Semantic 3D Inspection

Field test at bridge-tunnel vertical surface at Riverside Dr, New York

Robotic Inspection

From end of 2016, I was supported by US Dept. of Transportation of the project: Tier I University Transportation Center: Inspecting and Preserving Infrastructure through Robotic Exploration (INSPIRE Center). We proposed a new approach using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) towards a Concrete Structure Spalling and Crack database (CSSC), we also fined tuned the vgg 16 with a detection baseline for spalling/crack detection.
