Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a novel focus measure based on self-matching methods. A unique pencil-shaped profile is identified by comparing the similarity between patterns extracted around their neighborhood in each scene. Based on this, a new criterion function, CPV, is defined to evaluate focused or defocused scenes. OCM is recommended due to its invariance with regards to contrasts. Experiments using a telecentric lens are implemented to demonstrate the efficiency of proposed measure. Comparing OCM-based focus measure with conventional focus measures shows that OCM-based CPV is robust against illuminations. Using this method, pan-focused images are composed and depth information is represented.
