Improving the Kinect by Cross-Modal Stereo

  title={Improving the Kinect by Cross-Modal Stereo},
  author={Walon Wei-Chen Chiu and Ulf Blanke and Mario Fritz},
Estimating optimal weighted combination of RGB channels to be IR-like for improved stereo matching. Delay combination of different color channels and compute stereo correspondences w.r.t. the IR image independently. Fuse resulting depth estimate with depth sensed by Kinect by union of point clouds. Kinect active sensing: • good for homogenous region • failed on some surfaces ► specular ► transparent ► reflective RGB image IR image
