What Does Motion Reveal About Transparency?

  title={What Does Motion Reveal About Transparency?},
  author={Moshe Ben-Ezra and Shree K. Nayar},
The perception of transparent objects from images is known to be a very hard problem in vision. Given a single image, it is difficult to even detect the presence of transparent objects in the scene. In this paper, we explore what can be said about transparent objects by a moving observer. We show how features that are imaged through a transparent object behave differently from those that are rigidly attached to the scene. We present a novel model-based approach to recover the shapes and the… CONTINUE READING
