Reconstruction of Sculpture From Its Profiles With Unknown Camera Positions

K.-Y.K. Wong, R. Cipolla
2004 IEEE Transactions on Image Processing  
Profiles of a sculpture provide rich information about its geometry, and can be used for shape recovery under known camera motion.  ...  In this paper, we describe a complete and practical system for producing a three-dimensional (3-D) model from uncalibrated images of an arbitrary object using its profiles alone.  ...  Besides, we introduce the use of the two outer epipolar tangents, which simplifies the correspondence problem in matching epipolar tangent points, making the algorithms more robust.  ...

Contour matching using epipolar geometry

Joon Hee Han, Jong Seung Park
2000 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence  
In this paper we propose a contour matching algorithm which guarantees an accurate matching result, even for large motion contours.
