Dewarping Book Page Spreads Captured with a Mobile Phone Camera [chapter]

Chelhwon Kim, Patrick Chiu, Surendar Chandra
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Capturing book images is more convenient with a mobile phone camera than with more specialized flat-bed scanners or 3D capture devices.  ...  We built an application for the iPhone 4S that captures a sequence of hi-res (8 MP) images of a page spread as the user sweeps the device across the book.  ...  The dewarping method in our system is based on a cylindrical model, which for non-3D images performed the best (though the difference was not statistically significant) in the Document Image Dewarping  ...

Generic Document Image Dewarping by Probabilistic Discretization of Vanishing Points

Gilles Simon, Salvatore Tabbone
2021 2020 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR)  
In this paper we propose a generic approach based on vanishing points (VP) to reconstruct the 3D shape of document pages.  ...  Document images dewarping is still a challenge especially when documents are captured with one camera in an uncontrolled environment.  ...  Other approaches do not try to get a model of a 3D surface since they are based on 2D geometric features estimation [11] , [12] , [13] . These methods locally estimate a curve to line dewarping.  ...

Document image dewarping using robust estimation of curled text lines

A. Ulges, C.H. Lampert, T.M. Breuel
2005 Eighth International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR'05)  
For images of non-planar paper surfaces like books, page curl causes additional distortion, which poses an even greater problem due to its nonlinearity.  ...  Results are presented showing that the algorithm produces visually pleasing output and increases OCR accuracy, thus having the potential to become a general purpose preprocessing tool for camera based  ...  Our approach Our algorithm performs a line-by-line dewarping of the observed paper surface.  ...

Multiview Rectification of Folded Documents [article]

Shaodi You, Yasuyuki Matsushita, Sudipta Sinha, Yusuke Bou and Katsushi Ikeuchi
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Our main contribution is a new robust rectification method based on ridge-aware 3D reconstruction of a paper sheet and unwrapping the reconstructed surface using properties of developable surfaces via  ...  In contrast, our method uses regular images and is based on general developable surface models that can represent a wide variety of paper deformations.  ...  We address these issues by developing a robust ridge-aware surface reconstruction method for sparse 3D points.  ...

We present EyeMirror, a mobile device for calibration-free gaze approximation on surfaces (e.g., displays).  ...  Gaze is a powerful measure of people's attracted attention and reveals where we are looking within our current FOV. Hence gaze-based interfaces are gaining in importance.  ...  A well-known approach is to look for the radial edges and classify them as the limbus boundary using ellipse fitting. EyeMirror's algorithm is based on the approach by Wood et al. [46] .  ...
