CONVERGE – Telecommunications and Computer Vision Convergence Tools for Research Infrastructures

Telecommunications and computer vision belong to distinct scientific fields. This will change with the creation of a new joint research field resulting from the advent of wireless communications based on millimetre-wave radios with line-of-sight operating ranges. This has opened the possibility of leveraging on computer vision data to predict wireless channel dynamics and help build high-definition 3D maps for localisation and sensing, while on the other hand, radio-based data/imaging can help computer vision applications become more resilient against occlusion and poor luminosity. The EU-funded CONVERGE project will develop an innovative toolset consisting of vision-aided antennas and base stations, a vision-radio simulator and 3D environment modeller, as well as machine learning algorithms for multimodal data, including communications signals and video streams.
