Torsten Sattler

Computer Vision. 3D Reconstruction. Visual Localization.

Previous Experience

With his work, Dr Torsten Sattler has contributed 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 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. At CIIRC CTU he expects to build a team of five people working on machine learning and 3D Computer Vision.

Current Focus

His work has direct applications in robotics. At RICAIP at CIIRC CTU, he will have the possibility to work with great robotics researchers. Together they can explore the interconnections of computer vision, robotics, augmented reality, and AI. 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.
