RGB-D cameras provide per pixel color and depth information at high resolution. Gaming and entertainment applications such as the Microsoft Kinect system resulted in the mass production of RGB-D cameras at extremely low cost, also making them available for a wide range of robotics applications. In this talk, I will provide an overview of depth camera research we have done over the last three years. This work includes 3D mapping, object modeling and recognition, manipulation, and human pose tracking.
