OBJECTIVE

To create hybrid-intelligence pipelines for efficiently reconstructing 3D scenes from 2D video using crowdsourcing and computer vision.

APPROACH

We will create tools and models that allow us to effectively (and efficiently) trade off human and machine intelligence for efficient fine-grained annotation of traffic scenes. This will enable large-scale use of traditional 2D video for simulation-based training of autonomous vehicles.

OUTCOME

A proof-of-concept pipeline for reducing overall cost/human effort needed to extract fine-grained parameters from a scene in 2D video.
