Hi there! I'm Jochen Süßmuth and I'm currently a freelance consultant and researcher/software developer
specialized in novel 3D acquisition systems.
The focus of my work is on supporting my customers in integrating depth sensing devices like the Microsoft Kinect sensor or TOF cameras into their businesses.
If you want to learn more about my competencies, please check out my online CV.
My work with adidas on 3D full body scanning using off-the-shelf depth sensors has recently won the third place in the CeBIT Innovation Award 2013.
You can find more information, including two videos, on our scanner on the project's website.
Prior to working as a consultant, I spent some time as a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of
Erlangen-Nuremberg. From the same university, I've also obtained my diploma and doctoral degrees in 2005 and 2012, respectively.
During my time at the university, my research focused on 3D geometry processing, including 3D scanning, surface reconstruction from point
clouds as well as non-rigid registration of real-time 3D scanner data. Furthermore, I worked on novel algorithms for medical visualization and medical image processing.
An overview of my research can be found on the publications website. You may also want to read my dissertation online or buy it from amazon :)
