Thesis - Instance segmentation using 2.5D data



Apply by


Instance segmentation is useful in many applications, like for example robot picking. The state of the art deep learning methods gives impressive results, using gray or RGB data. However, it gets more and more common with cameras also giving depth (2.5D), which is usually necessary for robust robot picking.

The goal of this thesis is to develop deep learning instance segmentation networks including depth data and to evaluate how the performance is affected by incorporating the depth.

The work will be done in close cooperation with our Robot Guidance team, and a resulting implementation can be verified on real applications.
