Stereo with projection

3D reconstruction using multiple views

 A Camera flash based projector system for true scale

metric reconstruction

  • Reconstruction using two cameras

  • Unstructured pattern projection – only to aid stereo reconstruction

  • Simple, cost-effective projector system with just two lenses

  • Use of camera flash as light source

  • Pipeline for automatic reconstruction

  • Generation and refinement of mesh model

  • Volumetric reconstructions by revolving the object/camera setup

  • Low cost pattern projector and stereo system.

  • Estimation of accurate 3D structure even on objects with little or no texture.

  • Automatic pipeline for reconstruction and alignment of meshes.

  • Tested on variety of surface materials such as metal, porcelain, ceramics, natural fibers.

  • Evaluate errors quantitatively on various surfaces.

  • Collaborations with art and history museums to image and reconstruct artifacts with cultural and historical significance.



  • Capture images of the object from different directions with the checkerboard object.

  • Estimate alignment using the checkerboard.

  • Improve the alignment using iterative closest point algorithms.

  • Simple in construction and operation

  • Fast in acquisition of data

  • Easily reproducible and cost effective

  • Capable of producing true scale volumetric 3D models

  • Ability to reconstruct artifacts made out of a variety of materials, especially artifacts with large texture-less regions.

  • Ability to perform in ambient lighting conditions and various surface types without re-calibration

  • Use of multiple views of an object to recover 3D structure of an object/scene.

  • Techniques include Stereo reconstruction, shape from shading, structure from motion, space carving.

  • Unassisted methods typically fail in areas that contain little texture/features or repetitive areas.

  • Constraints on apparatus often domain specific – our interest is preservation of historical and cultural artifacts.

Reconstruct, filter and refine each view

(Sections 3.4-3.6)



Initial mesh

Refined mesh

  • Initialize a mesh based on image connectivity

  • Refine mesh by indentifying discontinuities

  • Exploit homogeneity of the distance metric on the reconstructed model


Automatic pair wise alignment using Checkerboard and final alignment using ICP

(Section 3.7)
