In this thesis, an image based three dimensional (3D) model reconstruction system is investigated and the work done for such a complete reconstruction system is presented. Calibrated images of a rigid object, acquired under a simple but controlled environment, are used to recover the 3D object geometry and the surface appereance. Based on a multi-image camera calibration method, an algorithm to define the rotation axis of a turn-table with respect to the fixed camera coordinate frame has been developed. Furthermore, this can be extended to estimate robustly the initial bounding volume of the object, which reduces the memory and processing costs in the volume intersection and carving processes. The object visual hull is obtained by volume intersection using object silhouettes. Then, the coarse object volume obtained is carved using a new algorithm based on photo-consistency that removes the disadvantages of silhouette based volume intersection method. mFinally, the concept of surface particles is adapted in order to extract a texture map that completes the object surface appereance.

Photometric stereo considering highlights and shadows
Büyükatalay, Soner; Halıcı, Uğur; Birgül, Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Three dimensional (3D) shape reconstruction that aims to reconstruct 3D surface of objects using acquired images, is one of the main problems in computer vision. There are many applications of 3D shape reconstruction, from satellite imaging to material sciences, considering a continent on earth or microscopic surface properties of a material. One of these applications is the automated firearm identification that is an old, yet an unsolved problem in forensic science. Firearm evidence matching algorithms rel...

Image-based extraction of material reflectance properties of a 3D rigid object
Erdem, ME; Erdem, IA; Yilmaz, UG; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2004-01-01)
In this study, an appearance reconstruction method based on extraction of material reflectance properties of a three-dimensional (3D) object from its two-dimensional (2D) images is explained. One of the main advantages of this system is that the reconstructed object can be rendered in real-time with photorealistic quality in varying illumination conditions. The reflectance of the object is decomposed into diffuse and specular components. While the diffuse component is stored in a global texture, the specula...
