3D Reconstruction of Scenes from single images

by Mick 0 Comments

There is a keen interest in the ability to construct a 3D Model from a single image.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon have developed a program that allows a computer to automatically generate 3-D reconstructions of scenes based on a single image.

Instant Scene Modeler

by Mick 0 Comments

Instant Scene Modeler (iSM) uses a pair of cameras to observe a scene. Each camera is looking at the scene from a slightly different angle and iSM can measure distances to thousands of points in each scene. When the cameras move. iSM will match new images, compute the camera motion and generate a model from the calculated 3D Data.
