Multi-baseline stereo correction for silhouette-based 3D model reconstruction from multiple images

Silhouette based reconstruction algorithm is simple and robust for 3D volume estimation of an object. However? it has two main drawbacks: insufficient number of viewing positions and the inability to detect concavity regions. Starting from an initial convex hull of the object to be modeled which is generated by a silhouette based reconstruction, an algorithm based on photoconsistency is described. The algorithm basically carves the excess volume elements using the multi-baseline stereo information. Result of the described algorithm is demostrated on a sythesized object in an artificial environment.


Extraction of 3D transform and scale invariant patches from range scans
Akagunduz, Erdern; Ulusoy, İlkay (2007-06-22)
An algorithm is proposed to extract transformation and scale invariant 3D fundamental elements from the surface structure of 3D range scan data. The surface is described by mean and Gaussian curvature values at every data point at various scales and a scale-space search is performed in order to extract the fundamental structures and to estimate the location and the scale of each fundamental structure. The extracted fundamental structures can later be used as nodes in a topological graph where the links betw...
Feature extraction from acoustic and hyperspectral data by 2d local discriminant bases search
Kalkan, Habil; Kalkan, Habil; Department of Information Systems (2008)
In this thesis, a feature extraction algorithm based on 2D Local Discriminant Bases (LDB) search is developed for acoustic and hyperspectral data. The developed algorithm extracts the relevant features by both eliminating the irrelevant ones and/or by merging the ones that do not provide extra information on their own. It is implemented on real world data to separate aflatoxin contaminated or high risk hazelnuts from the sound ones by using impact acoustic and hyperspectral data. Impact acoustics data is us...
3-D motion estimation of rigid objects for video coding applications using an improved iterative version of the E-matrix method
Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (1998-02-01)
As an alternative to current two-dimensional (2-D) motion models, a robust three-dimensional (3-D) motion estimation method is proposed to be utilized in object-based video coding applications, Since the popular E-matrix method is well known for its susceptibility to input errors, a performance indicator, which tests the validity of the estimated 3-D motion parameters both explicitly and implicitly, is defined. This indicator is utilized within the RANSAC method to obtain a robust set of 2-D motion correspo...
Multi-image region growing for integrating disparity maps
Leloglu, UĞUR MURAT; Halıcı, Uğur (1999-01-01)
In this paper, a multi-image region growing algorithm to obtain planar 3-D surfaces in the object space from multiple dense disparity maps, is presented. A surface patch is represented by a plane equation and a set of pixels in multiple images. The union of back projections of all pixels in the set onto the infinite plane, forms the surface patch. Thanks to that hybrid representation of planar surfaces, region growing (both region aggregation and region merging) is performed on all images simultaneously. Pl...
Nonintrusive model order reduction for cross-diffusion systems
Karasözen, Bülent; Mülayim, Gülden; Uzunca, Murat (2022-12-01)
In this paper, we investigate tensor based nonintrusive reduced-order models (ROMs) for parametric cross-diffusion equations. The full-order model (FOM) consists of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) in matrix or tensor form resulting from finite difference discretization of the differential operators by taking the advantage of Kronecker structure. The matrix/tensor differential equations are integrated in time with the implicit–explicit (IMEX) Euler method. The reduced bases, relying on a finite sample...
