3D face modeling is currently a popular area in Computer Graphics and Computer Vision. Many techniques have been introduced for this purpose, such as using one or more cameras, 3D scanners, and many other systems of sophisticated hardware with related software. But the main goal is to find a good balance between visual reality and the cost of the system. In this thesis, reconstruction of a 3D human face from a pair of stereo cameras is studied. Unlike many other systems, facial feature points are obtained automatically from two photographs with the help of a dot pattern projected on the object’s face. It is seen that using projection pattern also provided enough feature points to derive 3D face roughly. These points are then used to fit a generic face mesh for a more realistic model. To cover this 3D model, a single texture image is generated from the initial stereo photographs.

Conceptual modeling is considered to be essential in simulation development activities. However, there are only a few research studies on how to develop conceptual models. One of the important and comprehensive approaches is the methodology developed under the leadership of METU Modeling and Simulation Center (MODSIMMER) for Turkish Armed Forces. The project suggests a methodology to develop mission space conceptual models (GUKAM), and provides a Conceptual Model Development Tool for C4ISR M&S activities, w...

3D face modeling based on real images is one of the important subject of Computer Vision that is studied recently. In this paper the study that eve contucted in our Computer Vision and Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory on 3D face model generation using uncalibrated multiple still images is explained.
3D face model generation
Büyükatalay, Soner; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
Generation of photo-realistic 3D human face models is a hot topic in the area joining computer graphics and computer vision. Many different techniques are used for this purpose, but most of them are not feasible for home users. These techniques may use advanced hardware such as laser scanners, calibrated stereo cameras, or very sophisticated software that can be as expensive as advanced hardware. Face model generation by morphing an initial 3D model with uncalibrated camera photographs is studied in this th...
3D face reconstruction using stereo images and structured light
Öztürk, Ahmet Oğuz; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Nowadays, 3D modelling of objects from multiple images is a topic that has gained great recognition and is widely used in various fields. Recently, lots of progress has been made in identification of people using 3D face models, which are usually reconstructed from multiple face images. In this thesis, a system including stereo cameras and structured light is built for the purpose of 3D modelling. The system outputs are 3D shapes of the face and also the texture information registered to this shape. Althoug...
Active stereo vision : depth perception for navigation, environmental map formation and object recognition
Ulusoy, İlkay; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In very few mobile robotic applications stereo vision based navigation and mapping is used because dealing with stereo images is very hard and very time consuming. Despite all the problems, stereo vision still becomes one of the most important resources of knowing the world for a mobile robot because imaging provides much more information than most other sensors. Real robotic applications are very complicated because besides the problems of finding how the robot should behave to complete the task at hand, t...
