My name is Dr. Robert Maier and I am a Senior Computer Vision Engineer at Apple in Munich, focused on 3D reconstruction.
My research interests include (real-time) RGB-D based 3D Reconstruction, Visual SLAM, Visual Odometry, Shape-from-Shading and Bundle Adjustment techniques. Please visit my publication page to find out more about my research.
I have joined Apple Munich in October 2019 as a Senior Computer Vision Engineer, where I am working on cutting edge 3D reconstruction techniques. Before that, I was a Research Assistant and Doctorate Candidate at the Computer Vision Group at the Technical University of Munich, headed by Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers, from 2014-2019. Within the scope of my PhD activities, I spent several months as a Computer Vision Research Intern at Oculus Research (Redmond, WA, USA) and NVIDIA Research (Santa Clara, CA, USA). From 2013-2014 I worked as a Computer Vision Engineer at ImFusion (Munich). I have received my Bachelor’s (2010) and Master’s (2013, with distinction) degrees in Computer Science from TU Munich (Germany). During my Master’s studies, I spent an exchange semester at UPC Barcelona (Spain) and I worked as a Computer Vision Research Intern at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ (USA). Moreover, I have a Computer Science Expert degree and many years experience of working as a Software Engineer. Please have a look at my CV for more information.
