3D synthetic human face modelling tool based on T-spline surfaces

Aydoğan, Ali
In this thesis work, a 3D Synthetic Human Face Modelling Software is implemented using C++ and OpenGL. Bézier surfaces, B-spline surfaces, Nonuniform Rational B-spline surfaces, Hierarchical B-Spline surfaces and T-spline surfaces are evaluated as options for the surface description method. T-spline surfaces are chosen since they are found to be superior considering the requirements of the work. In the modelling process, a modular approach is followed. Firstly, high detailed facial regions (i.e. nose, eyes, mouth) are modelled, then these models are unified in a complete face model employing the merging capabilities of T-splines. Local and global features of the face model are parameterized in order to have the ability to create and edit various face models. To enhance the visual quality of the model, a region-variable rendering scheme is employed. In doing this, a new file format to define T-Spline surfaces is proposed. To reduce the computational and memory cost of the software, a simplified version of the T-Spline surface description method is proposed and used.

Robust transmission of 3D models
Bici, Mehmet Oğuz; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, robust transmission of 3D models represented by static or time consistent animated meshes is studied from the aspects of scalable coding, multiple description coding (MDC) and error resilient coding. First, three methods for MDC of static meshes are proposed which are based on multiple description scalar quantization, partitioning wavelet trees and optimal protection of scalable bitstream by forward error correction (FEC) respectively. For each method, optimizations and tools to decrease com...
Implementation of concurrent constraint transaction logic and its user interface
Altunyuva, Fethi; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis implements a logical formalism framework called Concurrent Constraint Transaction Logic (abbr.,CCTR) which was defined for modeling and scheduling of workflows under resource allocation and cost constraints and develops an extensible and flexible graphical user interface for the framework. CCTR extends Concurrent Transaction Logic and integrates with Constraint Logic Programming to find the correct scheduling of tasks that involves resource and cost constraints. The developed system, which integ...
Human motion analysis via axis based representations
Erdem, Sezen; Tarı, Zehra Sibel; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Visual analysis of human motion is one of the active research areas in computer vision. The trend shifts from computing motion fields to understanding actions. In this thesis, an action coding scheme based on trajectories of the features calculated with respect to a part based coordinate system is presented. The part based coordinate system is formed using an axis based representation. The features are extracted from images segmented in the form of silhouettes. We present some preliminary experiments that d...
Comparison of rough multi layer perceptron and rough radial basis function networks using fuzzy attributes
Vural, Hülya; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
The hybridization of soft computing methods of Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural networks, Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) neural networks with back-propagation learning, fuzzy sets and rough sets are studied in the scope of this thesis. Conventional MLP, conventional RBF, fuzzy MLP, fuzzy RBF, rough fuzzy MLP, and rough fuzzy RBF networks are compared. In the fuzzy neural networks implemented in this thesis, the input data and the desired outputs are given fuzzy membership values as the fuzzy properties أlow...
