3D face reconstruction using stereo images and structured light

Öztürk, Ahmet Oğuz
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. Although the system in this thesis is developed for face reconstruction, it is not specific to faces. Using the same methodology proposed in this study 3D reconstruction of any object can be achieved.


Texture mapping by multi-image blending for 3D face models
Bayar, Hakan; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
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 constr...
3D face reconstruction using stereo vision
Dikmen, Mehmet; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
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 a...
Multiagent moving target search in fully visible grid environments with no speed difference
Eroğul, Can; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, a new real-time multi-agent moving target pursuit algorithm and a moving target algorithm are developed and implemented. The environment is a grid world, in which a coordinated team of agents cooperatively blocks the possible escape routes of an intelligent target in real-time. Most of the moving target search algorithms presume that the agents are faster than the targets, so the pursuit is sure to end in favor of the agents. In this work, we relax this assumption and assume that all the mov...
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...
Improving interactive classification of satellite image content
Tekkaya, Gökhan; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Interactive classication is an attractive alternative and complementary for automatic classication of satellite image content, since the subject is visual and there are not yet powerful computational features corresponding to the sought visual features. In this study, we improve our previous attempt by building a more stable software system with better capabilities for interactive classication of the content of satellite images. The system allows user to indicate a few number of image regions that contain a...
