  • Publication number: 20180182117
    Abstract: A method is provided for reconstructing a three dimensional image, comprising: providing a pair of stereoscopic images captured by two image capturing devices; retrieving disparity data from the pair of stereoscopic images; using retrieved disparity data to determine contours of an object present in the pair of the stereoscopic images captured; selecting a pixel belonging to that object; establishing a search area at the vicinity of the selected pixel; determining values for various disparity candidates, wherein the determined values correspond to one or more chosen hypothesis associated with the search area; testing the one or more chosen hypothesis and selecting an hypothesis which best fits the selected pixel and its neighboring pixels; executing a stereo matching algorithm using data retrieved from the captured images while using the values of disparity candidates that correspond to the chosen hypothesis; and reconstructing the three dimensional image based on the results obtained.

  • Publication number: 20170070726
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for generating a three dimensional image. The method comprises: illuminating a target; capturing an image that comprises an object present at the illuminated target; converting the captured image into data and processing it to determine depth of the object; and generating a three dimensional image of the object whose depth has been determined. Preferably, the illumination intensity applied while illuminating the target, is determined based on the current intensity of ambient light at the target.

  • Publication number: 20150294182
    Abstract: There is provided a method for estimating semi-transparent object(s) from an image comprising: receiving an image having semi-transparent and overlaid object(s) for estimation; calculating a probability map of the object(s), the probability map comprising multiple pixels corresponding to the plurality of pixels of the received image, wherein each probability map pixel has a value proportional to the probability that the pixel of the received image contains the object(s); calculating an approximation image of an object suppressed image based on the object probability map, wherein the approximation image is substantially equal to corresponding regions of the received image at portions with low probability values, and the approximation image denotes a smooth approximation of the image with the object(s) suppressed at portions with high probability values of the object probability map; and calculating the object(s) for estimation based on the calculated approximation of the object suppressed image.
