Presentation Title: 3D Capture of Complex Real-World Scenes

Section: Poster Session Group 1 1

Location: , Great Hall

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 10:30am - 11:15am


The goal of this project is to create new datasets and benchmarks for 3D reconstruction methods.Middlebury hosts internationally-known benchmarks for stereo algorithms, which compute 3D depth maps from multiple input images.Building on work done in previous summers, we used a mobile stereo rig with four cameras and structured lighting from two video projectors to capture images and accurate 3D scene structure.We acquired 7 new datasets of different scenes, each under multiple lighting conditions and exposures.Our new datasets include a reconstruction of the famous Tsukuba "head and lamp" scene as well as a motorcycle scene in which we applied matte white paint to glossy surfaces in order to enable 3D measurements.We also improved both hardware and software of our system for increased robustness, accuracy, and usability.The long-term goal of this work is to stimulate research into the next generation of 3D reconstruction techniques that can handle real-world challenges.
