Paper Abstract

In numerous computer vision applications, there is both the need and the ability to access multiple types of information about the three dimensional aspects of objects or surfaces. When this information comes from different sources the combination becomes non-trivial. This paper describes the present state of ongoing research in Columbia's Vision Laboratory in the integration of multiple visual sensing methodologies which yield three dimensional information, in particular, feature based stereo algorithms, and various shape-from-texture algorithms are already in operation and multi-view shape-from-texture and shape-from shading modules are expected to be incorporated. Unlike most systems for multi-sensor integration, which fuse all the information at one conceptual level, e.g., the surface level, the system under development uses two levels of data fusion, intra-process integration and inter-process integration. The paper discusses intra-process integration techniques for feature-based stereo and shape-from-texture algorithms. It also discusses a inter-process integration technique based on smooth models of surfaces. Examples are presented using camera acquired images.
