Computer interfaces has changed to 3D graphics environments due to its high number of applications ranging from scientific importance to entertainment. To enhance the realism of the 3D models, an established rendering technique, texture mapping, is used. In computer vision, a way to generate this texture is to combine extracted parts of multiple images of real objects and it is the topic studied in this thesis. While the 3D face model is obtained by using 3D scanner, the texture to cover the model is constructed from multiple images. After marking control points on images and also on 3D face model, a texture image to cover the 3D face model is generated. Moreover, effects of the some features of OpenGL, a graphical library, on 3D texture covered face model are studied.

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...
Automatic eye tracking and intermediate view reconstruction for 3D imaging systems
Bediz, Yusuf; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In recent years, the utilization of 3D display systems became popular in many application areas. One of the most important issues in the utilization of these systems is to render the correct view to the observer based on his/her position. In this thesis, we propose and implement a single user view rendering system for autostereoscopic/stereoscopic displays. The system can easily be installed on a standard PC together with an autostereoscopic display or stereoscopic glasses (shutter, polarized, pulfrich, and...
Data parallelism for ray casting large scenes on a cpu-gpu cluster
Topcu, Tümer; İşler, Veysi; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
In the last decade, computational power, memory bandwidth and programmability capabilities of graphics processing units (GPU) have rapidly evolved. Therefore, many researches have been performed to use GPUs in advanced graphics rendering. Because of its high degree of parallelism, ray tracing has been one of the rst algorithms studied on GPUs. However, the rendering of large scenes with ray tracing can easily exceed the GPU's memory capacity. The algorithm proposed in this work uses a data parallel approac...
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...
An asynchronous system design and implementation of an FPGA
Ayyıldız, Nizam; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are widely used in prototyping digital circuits. However commercial FPGAs are not very suitable for asynchronous design. Both the architecture of the FPGAs and the synthesis tools are mostly tailored to synchronous design. Therefore potential advantages of the asynchronous circuits could not be observed when they are implemented on commercial FPGAs. This is shown by designing an asynchronous arithmetic logic unit (ALU), implemented in the style of micropipelines, on th...
