National Initiatives

Persyval-Lab exploratory project Carambole

The Carambole projects initiates a new collaboration between the Morpheo team and biophysicists from University Paris Diderot. The objectives are to develop hardware and software to help tracking feature points on a leaf of Averrhoa Carambola during its growth with a multi-camera system and to measure their 3D motion. Averrhoa carambola is of special interest because of the distinctive nutation balancing motion of a leaf during its growth.

This exploratory project is funded for 18 months in 2016 and 2017 by the Persyval-Lab LabEx.


ANR project Achmov – Accurate Human Modeling in Videos

The technological advancements made over the past decade now allow the acquisition of vast amounts of visual information through the use of image capturing devices like digital cameras or camcorders. A central subject of interest in video are the humans, their motions, actions or expressions, the way they collaborate and communicate. The goal of ACHMOV is to extract detailed representations of multiple interacting humans in real-world environments in an integrated fashion through a synergy between detection, figure-ground segmentation and body part labeling, accurate 3D geometric methods for kinematic and shape modeling, and large-scale statistical learning techniques. By integrating the complementary expertise of two teams (one French, MORPHEO and one Romanian, CLVP), with solid prior track records in the field, there are considerable opportunities to move towards processing complex real world scenes of multiple interacting people, and be able to extract rich semantic representations with high fidelity. This would enable interpretation, recognition and synthesis at unprecedented levels of accuracy and in considerably more realistic setups than currently considered. This project is currently ongoing with 2 PhDs on the Inria side: Vincent Leroy and Jinlong Yang.

Competitivity Clusters

FUI project Creamove

Creamove is a collaboration between the Morpheo team of the Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, the 4D View Solution company specialized in multi-camera acquisition systems, the SIP company specialized in multi-media and interactive applications and a choreographer. The objective is to develop new interactive and artistic applications where humans can interact in 3D with virtual characters built from real videos. Dancer performances will be pre-recorded in 3D and used on-line to design new movement sequences based on inputs coming from human bodies captured in real time. Website: http://www.creamove.fr.
