We are proud to announce, that our team member Adrian Winterstein has been awarded with the CAST Award 2012 in the category for bachelor theses. His bachelor thesis entitled “Ear detection in 3D images using surface curvature” was selected by the CAST members to win thie year’s award. Adrian Winterstein proposes a novel method for each detection in 3D profile images, that exploits the specific structure and appearance of the outer ear. With this approach, the accuracy of each locatization under pose variation could be improved significantly.
