A common problem of optical flow estimation in the multiscale variational framework is that fine motion structures cannot always be correctly estimated, especially for regions with significant and abrupt displacement variation. A novel extended coarse-to-fine (EC2F) refinement framework is introduced in this paper to address this issue, which reduces the(More)
We present a new approach to robustly solve photometric stereo problems. We cast the problem of recovering surface normals from multiple lighting conditions as a problem of recovering a low-rank matrix with both missing entries and corrupted entries, which model all types of non-Lambertian effects such as shadows and specularities. Unlike previous(More)
Video stabilization is an important video enhancement technology which aims at removing annoying shaky motion from videos. We propose a practical and robust approach of video stabilization that produces full-frame stabilized videos with good visual quality. While most previous methods end up with producing smaller size stabilized videos, our completion(More)
Among the most important research in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the development of systems that automatically monitor traffic flow at intersections. Rather than being based on global flow analysis as is currently done, these automatic monitoring systems should be based on local analysis of the behavior of each vehicle at the intersection.(More)
This paper presents a robust photometric stereo method that effectively compensates for various non-Lambertian corruptions such as specularities, shadows, and image noise. We construct a constrained sparse regression problem that enforces both Lambertian, rank-3 structure and sparse, additive corruptions. A solution method is derived using a hierarchical(More)
Hyperspectral imaging is a promising tool for applications in geosensing, cultural heritage and beyond. However, compared to current RGB cameras, existing hyperspectral cameras are severely limited in spatial resolution. In this paper, we introduce a simple new technique for reconstructing a very high-resolution hyperspectral image from two readily obtained(More)
Inferring human gaze from low-resolution eye images is still a challenging task despite its practical importance in many application scenarios. This paper presents a learning-by-synthesis approach to accurate image-based gaze estimation that is person- and head pose-independent. Unlike existing appearance-based methods that assume person-specific training(More)
We propose a method for removing non-uniform motion blur from multiple blurry images. Traditional methods focus on estimating a single motion blur kernel for the entire image. In contrast, we aim to restore images blurred by unknown, spatially varying motion blur kernels caused by different relative motions between the camera and the scene. Our algorithm(More)
In this paper we consider the problem of computing and removing interreflections in photographs of real scenes. Towards this end, we introduce the problem of inverse light transport - given a photograph of an unknown scene, decompose it into a sum of n-bounce images, where each image records the contribution of light that bounces exactly n times before(More)
In low-light conditions, it is known that Poisson noise and quantization noise become dominant sources of noise. While intensity difference is usually measured by Euclidean distance, it often breaks down due to an unnegligible amount of uncertainty in observations caused by noise. In this paper, we develop a new noise model based upon Poisson noise and(More)
