code / paper

Grouped Vector Attention and Partition-based Pooling make transformers effective and efficient for point cloud recognition.

ASH: A Modern Framework for Parallel Spatial Hashing in 3D Perception
Wei Dong, Yixing Lao, Michael Kaess, Vladlen Koltun
TPAMI, 2022
code / paper

A high-performance spatial hashing framework on GPU, demonstrating superior performance with fewer lines of code on various tasks such as volumetric reconstruction, non-rigid registration, and spatially varying appearance refinement.


CamTools: Camera Tools for Computer Vision
project / code

A collection of tools for handling cameras in computer vision. Plot, convert, project, ray cast, and do more with your cameras. A must-have for debugging NeRFs and 3D reconstruction.

Open3D: A Modern Library for 3D Data Processing
project / code

The leading open-source library for 3D processing with 400K+ monthly downloads from PyPI. Open3D exposes a set of carefully selected data structures and algorithms in both C++ and Python.
