A fast algorithm that processes polyhedral cones from views of an object to produce an octree representation of the object is proposed. A polyhedral cone dkfined by both a viewpoint and a polygonal contour of the object in the image for each view always contains the object. Thus, the common region of the cones for multiple views is considered to be an approximating one of the object. The octree representation controls all cubic regions in three-dimensional space as a set of nodes with a… CONTINUE READING
