Leisheng Zhong

I received the Ph.D. degree at the Department of Electronic Engineering in Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in June 2020.

I had been pursuing my Ph.D. degree since 2015 in Institute of Information Cognition & Intelligent System, Tsinghua University under the supervision of Prof. Li Zhang.

Before that, I received the B.Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2013.

I worked as an intern at Tencent Autonomous Driving Center during the summer of 2019.

My research interests include 3D computer vision, robotic vision, augmented reality, computer graphics and machine learning. I am currently mainly working on robust 3D object pose estimation and tracking.

Projects and Demos

A Stereo-Lidar SLAM System

We build a Simultaneously Localization and Mapping (SLAM) system based on a line-scan Lidar and two cameras.

3D Paint

Our 3D object pose tracking algorithm makes it possible to paint on the surface of 3D models, instead of on 2D papers.

Fast 3D Object Tracking with Edge Distance Fields

Very fast occlusion-aware 6-DOF object pose tracking based on edge distance fields. Objects could be tracked with only ~100 edge points.

A Vision-aided Robot Arm

We assemble a webcam to a commercial robot arm (uArm swift pro) and develop some demo applications, including automatic pick-and-place, laser engraving, 3D printing, planar target tracking, and the simulation of air refueling.
