Meet the 3D-ICE team

3D-ICE was originally created by the Embedded Systems Laboratory (ESL) in EPFL under the framework for the CMOSAIC project. Today, 3D-ICE is maintained by the students and researchers at ESL, and is under active development, thanks to the collaboration with several institutions and under the framework of several projects such as COMPUSAPIEN and RECIPE.

As a software library, 3D-ICE is constantly being upgraded and enhanced, and new versions are released. Various bachelors and graduate students at EPFL also contribute to this process. In addition, our research partners at the other laboratories in EPFL, IBM Research (Zurich), POLIMI and HES-SO have also contributed to 3D-ICE in many direct and indirect ways.
