VolVision: high-speed capture in unconstrained camera motion

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel concept called VolVision that encompasses using a camera to reconstruct 6DoF unconstrained motion. "VolVision" is designed to handle imagery falling, tossed or thrown cameras. And VolVision also allows users to reconstruct dynamic images and generate a 3D-mapped scene from image sequences. It could be used to model severe environments like valley and mountains that are normally not easily viewed by humans. We produced a prototype that embodies the concept above, and were able to reconstruct the camera's path, perform image mosaicing, and track 3D information of feature points in images.
