Experimental study on the sensitivity of autocalibration to projective camera model parameters

Hassanpour, Reza
Atalay, Mehmet Volkan
Existing methods of 3-D object modeling and recovering 3-D data from uncalibrated 2-D images are subject to errors introduced by assumptions about camera parameters and mismatches in finding point pairs in the images. In this study, we experimentally evaluate the effect of each of these assumptions together with the inaccuracy in the measurements in the images. Sensitivity of reconstruction errors to inaccuracies in the estimation of camera parameters and mismatches due to noise in input data is measured using a linear and two nonlinear autocalibration methods for a projective camera. Our experimental results show that some assumptions such as a vanishing skew can be safely made; however, other parameters such as principal point location are quite sensitive to wrong assumptions.

Determination of the position and orientation of rigid bodies by using single camera images
Kilic, Varlik; Platin, Bülent Emre (2007-07-04)
This study aims to present a new reconstruction method which enables reconstruction of 3D configuration of an object using single camera images. A secondary planar target which is a white circle with two internal black spots, one is located at the center, is used. The proposed reconstruction method is monocular and non-iterative. The elliptical contour and spot center locations of the target in an image is used to determine the 6-DOF configuration parameters of an object, on which the secondary target is ri...
Iterative Photometric Stereo with Shadow and Specular Region Detection for 3D Reconstruction
BUYUKATALAY, Soner; BİRGÜL, ÖZLEM; Halıcı, Uğur (2009-04-11)
Photometric stereo is a 3D reconstruction algorithm that uses the images of an object with different light conditions and its performance is affected by the shades and specular regions in the images. Especially, the use of Lambert reflectance model results in errors in the reconstructed surface normals. In this study an iterative approach was used to generate masks corresponding to these problematic regions and the surface normals were reconstructed using a Lambert based algorithm that excludes these region...
Keyframe based bi directional 2 D mesh representation for video object tracking and manipulation
Eren, Pekin Erhan (1999-10-28)
We propose a new bi-directional 2-D mesh representation of video objects, which utilizes multiple keyframes with forward and backward tracking. Experimental results on use of this representation for video object tracking in the presence of self occlusion are presented.
Image-based extraction of material reflectance properties of a 3D rigid object
Erdem, ME; Erdem, IA; Yilmaz, UG; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2004-01-01)
In this study, an appearance reconstruction method based on extraction of material reflectance properties of a three-dimensional (3D) object from its two-dimensional (2D) images is explained. One of the main advantages of this system is that the reconstructed object can be rendered in real-time with photorealistic quality in varying illumination conditions. The reflectance of the object is decomposed into diffuse and specular components. While the diffuse component is stored in a global texture, the specula...
Efficient algorithms for convolutional inverse problems in multidimensional imaging
Doğan, Didem; Öktem, Figen S.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
Computational imaging is the process of indirectly forming images from measurements using image reconstruction algorithms that solve inverse problems. In many inverse problems in multidimensional imaging such as spectral and depth imaging, the measurements are in the form of superimposed convolutions related to the unknown image. In this thesis, we first provide a general formulation for these problems named as convolutional inverse problems, and then develop fast and efficient image reconstruction algorith...
