Taking satisfactory photos under dim lighting conditions using a hand-held camera is challenging. If the camera is set to a long exposure time, the image is blurred due to camera shake. On the other hand, the image is dark and noisy if it is taken with a short exposure time but with a high camera gain. By combining information extracted from both blurred(More)
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 well-known that from three corresponding points there are at most four algebraic solutions. Less appears to be known about the cases of four and(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)
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)
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)
The geometry of plane-based calibration methods is well understood, but some user interaction is often needed in practice for feature detection. This paper presents a fully automatic calibration system that uses patterns of pairs of concentric circles. The key observation is to introduce a geometric method that constructs a sequence of points strictly(More)
We propose an automatic approach to generate street-side 3D photo-realistic models from images captured along the streets at ground level. We first develop a multi-view semantic segmentation method that recognizes and segments each image at pixel level into semantically meaningful areas, each labeled with a specific object class, such as building, sky,(More)
| This paper presents a linear algorithm for recovering 3D aane shape and motion from line correspondences with uncalibrated aane cameras. The algorithm requires a minimum of seven line correspondences over three views. The key idea is the introduction of a one-dimensional projec-tive camera. This converts 3D aane reconstruction of \line directions" into 2D(More)
