A question that naturally arises in active sensing systems, such as ToF systems, is how much volume can be sensed with a given power budget, and how this can be extended by means of some more intricate sensing scheme. The main objective of this project is the development of a very-wide-area ToF 3D sensing system which has to be outstandingly efficient regarding the power consumption. To attain such an ambitious goal we propose bringing compressive sensing into the game and using recently proposed adaptive methods for constructing close-to-optimal binary sensing matrices. Such matrices, initially developed at ZESS for use in pulsed ToF, are able to progressively concentrate the sensing power in those regions of the domain where the signals (e.g., sparse targets) live. This way the SNR of the measurements can be effectively improved by synthetically reducing the signal domain or, complementary, increasing the range of the system without increasing the power budget.
The successful candidate will be employed for a maximum period of three years full-time equivalent and receives a generous financial package plus an additional mobility and family allowance according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in an EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks (ITN). A career development plan will be prepared for each fellow in accordance with his/her supervisor and will include training, planned secondments and outreach activities in partner institutions of the network. The ESR fellows are supposed to complete their PhD thesis by the end of the 3rd year of their employment. For more information please visit the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks website.
