Talk 1: The Netherlands in Colorized Point Clouds

CycloMedia brings the added benefit of the opportunity to capture LiDAR data simultaneously while capturing our GeoCyclorama™ imagery. By this coincident capture method, we ensure the highest levels of both quality and accuracy. We further enhance the LiDAR data by processing it with our proprietary CycloPositioner software to increase its positional accuracy and perfect alignment in 3D space with our imagery. Given precise imagery co-referencing, we are able to extract the RGB values to produce a photo realistic “colorized point cloud”. Customers opting for LiDAR data collection will be able to use CycloMedia’s new Measure Smart ™ tool which takes advantage of a “depth” GeoCyclorama layer produced from the point cloud, and affords users a new measurement tool to achieve significant efficiencies in workflow. One example is the installation and planning of the solar panels on roofs and the second example is the creation of smart pointcloud allowing us to create inventory of the vegetation in a municipality.

About Bas boom

Bas Boom graduated at the Free University of Amsterdam in Computer Science in 2005. He received his PhD at the University of Twente (2010) in Electrical Engineering, where his thesis was entitled “Face recognition's grand challenge: uncontrolled conditions under control”. From 2011 until 2015 he worked as postdoc at University of Edinburgh on the “Fish4Knowledge” project. His main research is machine learning and computer vision on large scale image and video datasets using supercomputing facilities. He is author and co-author of over 30 scientific publications in journals and international conferences and organized 2 special issues and 2 scientific workshops. Currently within Cyclomedia, he is the expert on computer vision and machine learning, where he created algorithms for automatic blurring of license plates and faces, for traffic sign recognition and building detection from aerial images.

Talk 2: Urbanization, the need for healthy sustainable buildings

Transforming the build environment with SmartWindows, power and data generating glass. Due to urbanization and ongoing city growth, the need for healthy sustainable buildings is bigger than ever. We need to find a modular stand-alone solution to reduce energy consumption while optimizing the internal climate. Generating and using power locally while using data to optimize cooling and heating is the future. As cities become smarter, so must our grid and our power usage.
