Generating real-world content for VR is challenging in terms of capturing and processing at high resolution and high frame-rates. The content needs to represent a truly immersive experience, where the user can look around in 360-degree view and perceive the depth of the scene. The existing solutions only capture and offload the compute load to the server. But offloading large amounts of raw camera feeds takes longer latencies and poses difficulties for real-time applications. By capturing and computing on the edge, we can closely integrate the systems and optimize for low latency. However, moving the traditional stitching algorithms to battery …

This thesis addresses the problem of recommending a viewpoint for aesthetic photography. Viewpoint recommendation is suggesting the best camera pose to capture a visually pleasing photograph of the subject of interest by using any end-user device such as drone, mobile robot or smartphone. Solving this problem enables to capture visually pleasing photographs autonomously in areal photography, wildlife photography, landscape photography or in personal photography. The viewpoint recommendation problem can be divided into two stages: (a) generating a set of dense novel views based on the basis views captured about the subject. The dense novel views are useful to better understand …
