ÐThe determination of camera position and orientation from known correspondences of 3D reference points and their images is known as pose estimation in computer vision and space resection in photogrammetry. It is wellknown that from three corresponding points there are at most four algebraic solutions. Less appears to be known about the cases of four and(More)
This paper proposes a quasi-dense approach to 3D surface model acquisition from uncalibrated images. First, correspondence information and geometry are computed based on new quasi-dense point features that are resampled subpixel points from a disparity map. The quasi-dense approach gives more robust and accurate geometry estimations than the standard sparse(More)
In this paper, a novel graph-based transductive classification approach, called linear neighborhood propagation, is proposed. The basic idea is to predict the label of a data point according to its neighbors in a linear way. This method can be cast into a second-order intrinsic Gaussian Markov random field framework. Its result corresponds to a solution to(More)
Ringing is the most disturbing artifact in the image deconvolution. In this paper, we present a progressive inter-scale and intra-scale non-blind image deconvolution approach that significantly reduces ringing. Our approach is built on a novel edge-preserving deconvolution algorithm called <i>bilateral Richardson-Lucy (BRL)</i> which uses a large spatial(More)
This paper presents a robust algorithm to deblur two consecutively captured blurred photos from camera shaking. Previous dual motion deblurring algorithms succeeded in small and simple motion blur and are very sensitive to noise. We develop a robust feedback algorithm to perform iteratively kernel estimation and image deblurring. In kernel estimation, the(More)

A key limitation of all existing algorithms for shape and motion from image sequences under orthographic, weak perspective and para-perspective projection is that they require the calibration parameters of the camera. We present in this paper a new approach that allows the shape and motion to be computed from image sequences without having to know the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel image-based approach to model hair geometry from images taken at multiple viewpoints. Unlike previous hair modeling techniques that require intensive user interactions or rely on special capturing setup under controlled illumination conditions, we use a handheld camera to capture hair images under uncontrolled illumination(More)
In this paper, we propose a semi-automatic technique for modeling plants directly from images. Our image-based approach has the distinct advantage that the resulting model inherits the realistic shape and complexity of a real plant. We designed our modeling system to be interactive, automating the process of shape recovery while relying on the user to(More)
Face recognition is a focused issue in pattern recognition over the past decades. In this paper, we have proposed a new scheme for face recognition using 3D information. In this scheme, the scattered 3D point cloud is first represented with a regular mesh using hierarchical mesh fitting. Then the local shape variation information is extracted to(More)
