Sankar, Aditya and Seitz, Steven (2012): Capturing indoor scenes with smartphones. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 403-412.

In this paper, we present a novel smartphone application designed to easily capture, visualize and reconstruct homes, offices and other indoor scenes. Our application leverages data from smartphone sensors such as the camera, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer to help model the indoor scene. The output of the system is two-fold; first, an interactive visual tour of the scene is generated in real time that allows the user to explore each room and transition between connected rooms. Second, with some basic interactive photogrammetric modeling the system generates a 2D floor plan and accompanying 3D model of the scene, under a Manhattan-world assumption. The approach does not require any specialized equipment or training and is able to produce accurate floor plans.

Sankar, Aditya, Prasad, Archana, Joy, Joseph, Datha, Naren and Manchepalli, Ajay (2009): Digital heritage. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 3503-3504.

The India Digital Heritage Project is a collaborative initiative between the industry and academia, with the aim of using novel techniques to efficiently capture and present various aspects of India's diverse heritage, while at the same time advancing the state-of-the art in related research areas. As part of the Digital Heritage Project, we have built a prototype virtual tour of a South Indian temple that, for the first time, integrates technologies such as Photosynth and HDView, opening up new ways to interactively explore visually complex sites. These technologies are combined with audio, video and guided walkthroughs, to provide a compelling end user experience. The accompanying video highlights the key scenarios of our prototype.
