• Compact Encoding of Robot-generated 3D Maps for Efficient Wireless Transmission 

      Kaess, Michael; Arkin, Ronald C.; Rossignac, Jaroslaw R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003)
      This work focuses on real-time compression of laser data on board a mobile robot platform. Data is transmitted from the robot over low-bandwidth channels or incrementally in short bursts to a host, where it can be further ...
    • Edgebreaker on a Corner Table: A Simple Technique for Representing and Compressing Triangulated Surfaces 

      Rossignac, Jaroslaw R.; Safanova, Alla; Szymczak, Andrzej (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
      A triangulated surface S with V vertices is sometimes stored as a list of T independent triangles, each described by the 3 floating-point coordinates of its vertices. This representation requires about 576V bits and provides ...
    • Extraction of Topologically Simple Isosurfaces from Volume Datasets 

      Szymczak, Andrzej; Vanderhyde, James (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003)
      There are numerous algorithms in graphics and visualization whose performance is known to decay as the topological complexity of the input increases. On the other hand, the standard pipeline for 3D geometry acquisition ...
    • Finger Sculpting with Digital Clay 

      Gargus, Joshua; Kim, Byungmoon; Rossignac, Jaroslaw R.; Shaw, Christopher D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002)
      "Digital Clay" is a term that signifies a computer-controlled physical surface, capable of taking any of a wide variety of possible shapes in response to changes in a digital 3D model or changes in the pressure exerted ...
