The importance of silhouette optimization in 3D shape reconstruction system from multiple object scenes

  title={The importance of silhouette optimization in 3D shape reconstruction system from multiple object scenes},
  author={Waqqas ur Rehman Butt and Martin Servin},
This paper presents a multi stage 3D shape reconstruction system of multiple object scenes by considering the silhouette inconsistencies in shape-fromsilhouette SFS method. These inconsistencies are common in multiple view images due to object occlusions in different views, segmentation and shadows or reflection due to objects or light directions. These factors raise huge challenges when attempting to construct the 3D shape by using existing approaches which reconstruct only that part of the… 


3D Reconstruction by Fusioning Shadow and Silhouette Information
This paper proposes to replace a multicamera system of SFS by multi-infrared light sources while keeping the same procedure of Visual Hull reconstruction (VH), which has many advantages compared to SFS.
3D shape reconstruction from 2D images
AbstractWe present a method of reconstructing a 3D model from several 2D images of an object taken from different views. The data acquisition system consists of a camera on a tripod, and a
Silhouette-based 3-D model reconstruction from multiple images
An algorithm to extract the rotation axis of a turn-table has been developed based on a multi-image calibration method and it can be extended to estimate robustly the initial bounding volume of the object to be modeled.

An algorithm to improve the shape approximation by combining multiple silhouette images captured across time by first estimating the rigid motion between the visual hulls formed at different time instants and then combining them to get a tighter bound on the object's shape.
Shape from incomplete silhouettes based on the reprojection error
This work recovers the voxel occupancy which describes the 3D shape by minimizing an energy based on an approximation of the error between the shape 2D projections and the silhouettes.
Shape and View Independent Reflectance Map from Multiple Views
The View Independent Reflectance Map (VIRM), which is a representation of the joint effect of the diffuse+specular Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) and the environment illumination, is used to model the reflectance of an object.
3D object manipulation in a single photograph using stock 3D models
This work presents a method that enables users to perform the full range of 3D manipulations, including scaling, rotation, translation, and nonrigid deformations, to an object in a photograph.
Shape from inconsistent silhouette
A fast technique for estimating that part of the volume which projects inconsistently and a criteria for classifying it by minimizing the probability of miss-classification taking into account the 2D error detection probabilities of the silhouettes are proposed.
Shape from silhouette using Dempster-Shafer theory
This work proposes a novel shape from silhouette (SfS) algorithm using the Dempster-Shafer (DS) theory for dealing with inconsistent silhouettes and outperforms the traditional SfS method and other techniques specifically designed to deal with inconsistencies.

This paper proposes a shape-from-silhouette algorithm that is robust to inconsistent silhouettes, often common in real applications due to occlusions, errors in the background subtraction, noise or
