We propose an advanced visual hull technique to compensate for outliers using the reliabilities of the silhouettes. The proposed method consists of a foreground extraction technique based on the generalized Gaussian family model and a compensated shape-from-silhouette algorithm. They are connected by the intra-/inter-silhouette reliabilities to compensate for carving errors from defective segmentation or partial occlusion which may occur in a real environment. The 3D reconstruction process is… CONTINUE READING
