Image analysis and computer vision can be effectively employed to recover the three-dimensional structure of imaged objects, together with their surface properties. In this paper, we address the problem of metric reconstruction and texture acquisition from a single uncalibrated view of a surface of revolution (SOR). Geometric constraints induced in the image by the symmetry properties of the SOR structure are exploited to perform self-calibration of a natural camera, 3D metric reconstruction… Expand
