GMPR - Geometric Modelling and Pattern Recognition Research Group
Original and exciting research in geometric modelling and pattern recognition
Fast 3D reconstruction technologies and sensor development
The Geometric Modelling and Pattern Recognition (GMPR) Research Group is part of the CCRC-Communication and Computing Research Centre, and pursues original and exciting research in geometric modelling and pattern recognition with a major focus on
Fast 3D reconstruction from a single 2D shot using GMPR patented line projection techniques
3D and 2D face and object recognition
AI-based pattern recognition methods
Image processing and data compression algorithms (2D, 3D, video)
Pattern recognition for security and network applications
We have developed and patented unique technologies for fast 3D surface scanning with a single, instantaneous shot. The system can use either structured white light or near infra-red.
Our technologies support a range of applications such as security, multimedia graphics and animation, geometrical descriptions of 3D modelling software, verification of shape geometry in industrial processes, medical prosthetics and rehabilitation, reverse engineering and archiving plus much more.
The impact of GMPR research can be summarized as:
Through our patents, we have licensed to companies in Europe and the USA;
The GMPR technologies have been transferred to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) across Europe, through the European funded MARWIN and ADMOS projects;
The social and cultural impacts are evidenced by the 3D scanning of representative items from the Museums Sheffield Metalwork Collection which have been made publicly available on the web, and through the ‘Man of Steel’ community project where a landmark sculpture will form a gateway to South Yorkshire and the Sheffield City Region.
