Prof. Corso moved to the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the University of Michigan in the 8/2014. He continues his work and research group in high-level computer vision at the intersection of perception, semantics/language, and robotics. Unless you are looking for something specific, historically, here, you probably would rather go to his new page.

Direct Methods for Surface Tracking in Stereo
We have developed a set of algorithms to directly track planar surfaces and parametric surfaces under a calibrated stereo-rig. A movie demonstrating the planar surface tracking is here. A binary pixel mask is maintained which determines those pixel belonging to the plane (and with good texture); it is shown in red in the lower left of the video. The green vector being rendered is the plane's normal vector. Left is an image of the system that was built with our plane tracking routines to localize mobile robots. In the image, we show the real scene, the two walls that are being tracked (one in blue and one in red), and an overhead (orthogonal) projection of the reconstructed walls.
