Dr Torsten Sattler has contributed with his work to the Institute of Visual Computing at one of the world’s leading universities in the field of technology and natural sciences, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He graduated in computer science and also got his doctoral degree at RWTH Aachen, the largest university of technology in Germany and one of the most renowned in Europe.
Before joining CIIRC, Dr. Torsten Sattler worked at the Chalmers Technical University in Gothenburg, Sweden. His main research interest is 3D computer vision, with a special focus on 3D reconstruction and visual localization. His expectation at CIIRC CTU is to build a group of five people working on machine learning and 3D Computer Vision.
His work has direct applications in robotics. At RICAIP at CIIRC CTU he will have a possibility to work with great robotics researchers and thus explore the interconnections of computer vision, robotics, augmented reality, and AI in more detail. He is planning to work on advanced localization and 3D reconstruction algorithms that work robustly and reliably on a wider range of scenes while modelling the fact that the real world is dynamic.
