In this group, we concentrate on 3D reconstruction by using multiple cameras and sensors. In order to generate high quality 3D model, we utilize computer vision technique such as stereo vision, camera calibration and image segmentation.

Development measuring methods for table tennis balls in a match
Nowadays, data becomes to be used for match analysis in practical scenario in sports. However, there are some problems, such as enormous amount of time, and easy way to measure the velocity or rotation of balls.
In this research, we are developing (1) a method for reconstructing the 3D trajectory of a ball, (2) a method for measuring the rotation of a ball, and pursue to establish basic methods that makes easy to use data in practical scenario in sports.
Analysis using video in training of rowing
In rowing, the index that is important is a time mainly. However, in this research, by paying attention to the movement of oars in the video in training, and easier to see the movement of oars by the moving image processing, to consider how the motion oars whether associated with the boat speed. By utilizing the video in training, it is assumed that it is possible to analyze the motion of a natural environment usual.
