  • Publication number: 20150221093
    Abstract: A high-density shape reconstruction is conducted in measuring animal bodies as well. An image processing system has a projection device, an imaging device, and an image processing apparatus connected to the projection device and the imaging device, wherein the projection device projects a projected pattern to an observation target, the imaging device captures the projected pattern, and the image processing apparatus performs shape reconstruction based on an input image including the projected pattern. The image processing apparatus includes a unit for fetching the input image captured by the imaging device and performing line detection for the projected pattern projected by the projection device, wherein the projected pattern is a grid pattern formed of wave lines; and a unit for performing shape reconstruction by associating intersection points of vertical and horizontal lines extracted by the line detection with the projected pattern.

  • Patent number: 8837812
    Abstract: Provided are an image processing device, an image processing method, and a program which are capable of high density restoration and which are also strong to image processing. An image processing device mainly consists of a projector serving as a projection means, a camera as a photographing means, and an image processing means consisting of, for example, a personal computer. The image processing means acquires the intersection point between patterns from a photographed image and calculates a first solution including degree of freedom by using the constraint condition of a first tentative plane and a second tentative plane including the intersection point and the constraint condition obtained from the positional relationship between the projector and the camera. The degree of freedom is cancelled by primary search, thereby restoring a three-dimensional shape.
