* Build 3D models for `PhotoTours`_.
* Estimate satellite image sensor characteristics.
* Stitch `panoramas`_ on Android and iOS.
* Apply `Lens Blur`_ on Android.
* Solve `bundle adjustment`_ and `SLAM`_ problems in `Project
* `Willow Garage`_ uses Ceres to solve `SLAM`_ problems.
* `Southwest Research Institute <>`_ uses Ceres for
`calibrating robot-camera systems`_.
* `Blender <>`_ uses Ceres for `planar
tracking`_ and `bundle adjustment`_.
* `OpenMVG <>`_ an open source
multi-view geometry library uses Ceres for `bundle adjustment`_.
* `Microsoft Research <>`_ uses
Ceres for nonlinear optimization of objectives involving subdivision
surfaces under `skinned control meshes`_.
* `Matterport <>`_, uses Ceres for global
alignment of 3D point clouds and for pose graph optimization.
* `Obvious Engineering <>`_ uses Ceres for
bundle adjustment for their 3D photography app `Seene
* The `Autonomous Systems Lab <>`_ at ETH
Zurich uses Ceres for
* Camera and Camera/IMU Calibration.
* Large scale optimization of visual, inertial, gps and
wheel-odometry data for long term autonomy.
* `OpenPTrack <>`_ uses Ceres for camera
* The `Intelligent Autonomous System Lab <>`_
at University of Padova, Italy, uses Ceres for
* Camera/depth sensors network calibration.
* Depth sensor distortion map estimation.
* `Theia <>`_ is an open source
Structure from Motion library that uses Ceres for `bundle adjustment`_
and camera pose estimation.
* The `Applied Research Laboratory <>`_ at
Pennsylvania State University uses in their synthetic aperture Sonar
beamforming engine, called ASASIN , for estimating platform
* `Colmap <>`_ is an open source
structure from motion library that makes heavy use of Ceres for
bundle adjustment with support for many camera models and for other
non-linear least-squares problems (relative, absolute pose
refinement, etc.).
