Bachelor and Master thesis in the following areas:
- A remote rendering system for point cloud data (in collaboration with industry)

- Deep learning for improved weather forecasting

- Learning trajectory clustering using neural network
- Learning Level-of-Detail representations for point clouds

- In collaboration with partners from industry, we have a number of thesis topics available in the area of point-based rendering, geo-localization using public data, scene fusion from different viewpoints. If you are interested, please contact  westermann(at)tum.de
