Shape from Silhouette (bibtex)
by Srdan Tosovic
Abstract:
An algorithm for automatic construction of a 3D model of an object is presented. The construction is based on a sequence of images of the object taken from different viewpoints. The object's silhouette is the only feature which is extracted from an input image. Images are acquired by rotating the object on a turntable in front of a stationary camera. The algorithm uses an octree representation of the model, and builds this model incrementally, by performing limited processing of all input images for each level of the octree. Beginning from the root node at the level 0 a rough model of the object is obtained quickly and is refined as the processed level of the octree increases. Results of the algorithm developed are presented for both synthetic and real input images.
