3D Reconstruction from Multiple Images, Part 1: Principles by Theo Moons, Luc van Gool, Maarten Vergauwen

By Theo Moons, Luc van Gool, Maarten Vergauwen

3D Reconstruction from a number of photographs, half 1: rules discusses and explains the right way to extract 3-dimensional (3D) versions from undeniable photos. particularly, the 3D details is bought from photographs for which the digicam parameters are unknown. the foundations underlying such uncalibrated structure-from-motion tools are defined. First, a quick evaluate of 3D acquisition applied sciences places such equipment in a much wider context and highlights their vital merits. Then, the particular thought at the back of this line of analysis is given. The authors have attempted to maintain the textual content maximally self-contained, accordingly additionally warding off counting on an in depth wisdom of the projective thoughts that sometimes look in texts approximately self-calibration 3D tools. really, mathematical reasons which are extra amenable to instinct are given. the reason of the idea contains the stratification of reconstructions bought from photo pairs in addition to metric reconstruction at the foundation of greater than photos mixed with a few extra wisdom in regards to the cameras used. 3D Reconstruction from a number of photographs, half 1: rules is the 1st of a three-part Foundations and developments educational in this subject written by means of an analogous authors. half II will concentrate on more effective information regarding find out how to enforce such uncalibrated structure-from-motion pipelines, whereas half III will define an instance pipeline with extra implementation matters particular to this actual case, and together with a person advisor.

Example text

Unfortunately, as both the fundamental matrix F and [e2 ]× have rank 2, the matrix [e2 ]× F is not invertible as A ought to be. But, recall from the previous section that two matrices A1 and A2 satisfying F = [e2 ]× A1 and F = [e2 ]× A2 are related by A1 = A2 + e2 aT for some three-vector a ∈ R3 . This implies that the unknown matrix A must be of the form A = −(1 / e2 2 ) [e2 ]× F + e2 aT for some three-vector a ∈ R3 . It follows that the invertible matrix A, needed for an affine reconstruction of the scene, can only be recovered up to three unknown components of a.

Some art historians believe that the painter Vermeer actually used a room-sized version of a camera obscura. Observe that this pinhole image actually is the photo-negative image of the scene. The photo-positive image one observes when watching a photograph or a computer screen corresponds to the projection of the scene onto a hypothetical plane that is situated in front of the camera obscura at the same distance from the hole as the opposite wall on which the image is actually formed. In the sequel, the term image plane will always refer to this hypothetical plane in front of the camera.

Hence a non-linear minimization algorithm like Levenberg–Marquardt is applied to these data. The algorithm is initialized with the distortion parameters set to zero. 3 The 3D Reconstruction Problem 329 fitted. , the resulting error is close to zero). 5. 3 The 3D Reconstruction Problem The aim of passive 3D reconstruction is to recover the geometric structure of a (static) scene from one or more of its images: Given a point m in an image, determine the point M in the scene of which m is the projection.
