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 specular component is represented with a Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF). While estimating the diffuse components, illumination-invariant images of the object are computed from the input images, and a global texture of the object is extracted from these images by using surface particles. The specular reflectance data are collected from the residual images obtained by taking difference between the input images and corresponding illumination-invariant images, and a BRDF model is fitted to these data. At the rendering phase, the diffuse and specular components are blended into each other to achieve a photorealistic appearance of the reconstructed object.

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...
3d face representation and recognition using spherical harmonics
Tunçer, Fahri; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this study, a 3D face representation and recognition method based on spherical harmonics expansion is proposed. The input data to the method is range image of the face. This data is called 2.5 dimensional. Input faces are manually marked on the two eyes, nose and chin points. In two dimensions, using the marker points, the human face is modeled as two concentric half ellipses for the selection of region of interest. These marker points are also used in three dimensions to register the faces so that the n...
3D Face Reconstruction Using Stereo Images and Structured Light
OZTURK, Ahmet Oguz; Halıcı, Uğur; ULUSOY PARNAS, İLKAY; AKAGUNDUZ, Erdem (2008-04-22)
In this paper, the 3D face scanner that we developed using stereo cameras and structured light together is presented. Structured light having a pattern of vertical lines is used to create feature points and to match them easily. 3D point cloud obtained by stereo analysis is post processed to obtain the 3D model in obj format.
3D object recognition using scale space of curvatures
Akagündüz, Erdem; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In this thesis, a generic, scale and resolution invariant method to extract 3D features from 3D surfaces, is proposed. Features are extracted with their scale (metric size and resolution) from range images using scale-space of 3D surface curvatures. Different from previous scale-space approaches; connected components within the classified curvature scale-space are extracted as features. Furthermore, scales of features are extracted invariant of the metric size or the sampling of the range images. Geometric ...
