Texture mapping by multi-image blending for 3D face models

Bayar, Hakan
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.


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...
Ethernet based real time communications for embedded systems
Yılmaz, Ozan; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Fast paced improvement of Ethernet technology has also received attention in the industry field like it did in other fields and ways of usage have started to be studied. As it is understood that the standard Ethernet protocols cannot be used due to the unsatisfied real time requirements, industrial and academic researchers have started to develop solutions to overcome this deficiency. In this thesis, the real hardware adaptations of Real Time Ethernet and RTXX protocol algorithms are implemented and their b...
SystemC implementation with analog mixed signal modeling for a microcontroller
Mert, Yakup Murat; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, an 8-bit microcontroller, PIC 16F871, has been implemented using SystemC with classical hardware design methods. Analog modules of the microcontroller have been modeled behaviorally with SystemC-AMS which is the analog and mixed signal extensions for the SystemC. SystemC-AMS provides the capability to model non-digital modules and synchronization with the SystemC kernel. In this manner, electronic systems that have both digital and analog components can be described and simulated very effect...
