We describe a hardware and software system for digitizing the shape and color of large fragile objects under non-laboratory conditions. Our system employs laser triangulation rangefinders, laser time-of-flight rangefinders, digital still cameras, and a suite of software for acquiring, aligning, merging, and viewing scanned data. As a demonstration of this(More)
In this paper we present a multiview registration method for aligning range data. We first align scans pairwise with each other and use the pairwise alignments as constraints that the multiview step enforces while evenly diffusing the pairwise registration errors. This approach is especially suitable for registering large data sets, since using constraints(More)
The contrast in real world scenes is often beyond what consumer cameras can capture. For these situations, High Dynamic Range (HDR) images can be generated by taking multiple exposures of the same scene. When fusing information from different images, however, the slightest change in the scene can generate artifacts which dramatically limit the potential of(More)
Style translation is the process of transforming an input motion into a new style while preserving its original content. This problem is motivated by the needs of interactive applications, which require rapid processing of captured performances. Our solution learns to translate by analyzing differences between performances of the same content in input and(More)
We present an efficient algorithm for continuous image recognition and feature descriptor tracking in video which operates by reducing the search space of possible interest points inside of the scale space image pyramid. Instead of performing tracking in 2D images, we search and match candidate features in local neighborhoods inside the 3D image pyramid(More)

We have built an outdoors augmented reality system for mobile phones that matches camera-phone images against a large database of location-tagged images using a robust image retrieval algorithm. We avoid network latency by implementing the algorithm on the phone and deliver excellent performance by adapting a state-of-the-art image retrieval algorithm based(More)
The human visual system can operate in a wide range of illumination levels due to several adaptation processes working in concert. For the most part, these adaptation mechanisms are transparent, leaving the observer unaware of his or her absolute adaptation state. At extreme illumination levels, however, some of these mechanisms produce perceivable(More)
