Light Transport Measurement using ToF Camera

Speaker: Dr. Yasuhiro Mukaigawa
Affiliation: Professor, Nara Institute of Science and Technology


The time-of-flight camera was originally developed for depth sensing but can be used for different purposes by utilizing the principle. In this talk, we introduce several applications based on light transport measurement using the time-of-flight camera including recovery of the temporal point spread function, material classification, and defogging. The presented applications show the future possibilities of the time-of-flight camera.


Yasuhiro Mukaigawa received his ME and PhD degrees from University of Tsukuba in 1994 and 1997, respectively. He became a research associate at Okayama University in 1997, an assistant professor at University of Tsukuba in 2003, an associate professor at Osaka University in 2004, and a professor at Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST) in 2014.  He was a visiting associate professor at MIT Media Lab from 2009 to 2010.  His current research interests include photometric analysis and computational photography.  He served as Area Chairs of ACCV 2007 and 2012, and General Chair of ICCP 2019.
