Piecewise planar models for stereo have recently become popular for modeling indoor and urban outdoor scenes. The strong planarity assumption overcomes the challenges presented by poorly textured surfaces, and results in low complexity 3D models for rendering, storage, and transmission. However, such a model performs poorly in the presence of non-planar objects, for example, bushes, trees, and other clutter present in many scenes. We present a stereo method capable of handling more general… CONTINUE READING
