Showcase Mars 2020
3D landscape videos & immersive geologic story telling
Mars 2020 Mastcam-Z 3D Vision, in collaboration with the Mars 2020 Science Team
FEMtech-internship in the research group Machine Vision Applications
To produce a video using a 3D visualization asset (PRo3D) that immersively documents the trajectory of the Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance and its companion Ingenuity. See a Simple Example, to be expanded over the Perseverance Rover’s trajectory (~3km) combining various 3D data products distributed over the full operational site.
In cooperation with geologists you collect existing satellite 3D models and 3D models generated from the Mastcam-Z instrument, overlay them on top of each other, identify multi-scale virtual trajectories, add existing geologic annotations and prepare, conduct and validate the offline rendering of videos. You will maintain the existing data elements in their spatial distribution in a suitable form, and help develop an interface for maintenance of huge amounts of geolocated textured point clouds prepared for interfacing to PRo3D.
