Reconstruction using a mixed camera system

Keywords: Computer vision - 3D reconstruction

Functional Description: We developed a multiple camera platform composed of both high-definition color cameras and low-resolution depth cameras. This platform combines the advantages of the two camera types. On one side, depth (time-of-flight) cameras provide coarse low-resolution 3D scene information. On the other side, depth and color cameras can be combined such as to provide high-resolution 3D scene reconstruction and high-quality rendering of textured surfaces. The software package developed during the period 2011-2014 contains the calibration of TOF cameras, alignment between TOF and color cameras, TOF-stereo fusion, and image-based rendering. These software developments were performed in collaboration with the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, Seoul, Korea. The multi-camera platform and the basic software modules are products of 4D Views Solutions SAS, a start-up company issued from the PERCEPTION group.
