Romain Brégier

I am currently R&D engineer in computer vision and robotics, at Siléane -- a French company developing solutions of robotic manipulation for industry.

I completed my industrial PhD at Inria and Siléane in 2018, under the academic supervision of Frédéric Devernay and Prof. James L. Crowley. Before this, I obtained a Master degree of Engineering at the École Centrale de Lyon, jointly with a Master of Signal and Image Processing from the University of Lyon.

Most of my work is confidential, but we managed to get some parts published during my PhD:

R. Brégier, F. Devernay, L. Leyrit, and J. L. Crowley, "Defining the Pose of Any 3D Rigid Object and an Associated Distance", in International Journal of Computer Vision, 2017. (article, HAL).
Article in which we introduce a notion of pose of a rigid object accounting for its potential symmetries, along with some tools enabling to deal with it in an efficient and rigorous manner.

R. Brégier, F. Devernay, L. Leyrit and J. L. Crowley, "Symmetry Aware Evaluation of 3D Object Detection and Pose Estimation in Scenes of Many Parts in Bulk", in The IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) Workshops, 2017. (paper, supplementary material , poster).
Best Paper Award. The associated dataset can be found here.
