Full-Body Awareness from Partial Observations [article]

Chris Rockwell, David F. Fouhey
2020 arXiv   pre-print
There has been great progress in human 3D mesh recovery and great interest in learning about the world from consumer video data. Unfortunately current methods for 3D human mesh recovery work rather poorly on consumer video data, since on the Internet, unusual camera viewpoints and aggressive truncations are the norm rather than a rarity. We study this problem and make a number of contributions to address it: (i) we propose a simple but highly effective self-training framework that adapts human

D mesh recovery systems to consumer videos and demonstrate its application to two recent systems; (ii) we introduce evaluation protocols and keypoint annotations for 13K frames across four consumer video datasets for studying this task, including evaluations on out-of-image keypoints; and (iii) we show that our method substantially improves PCK and human-subject judgments compared to baselines, both on test videos from the dataset it was trained on, as well as on three other datasets without further adaptation.

Understanding 3D Object Articulation in Internet Videos [article]

Shengyi Qian, Linyi Jin, Chris Rockwell, Siyi Chen, David F. Fouhey
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We propose to investigate detecting and characterizing the 3D planar articulation of objects from ordinary videos. While seemingly easy for humans, this problem poses many challenges for computers. We propose to approach this problem by combining a top-down detection system that finds planes that can be articulated along with an optimization approach that solves for a 3D plane that can explain a sequence of observed articulations. We show that this system can be trained on a combination of

PixelSynth: Generating a 3D-Consistent Experience from a Single Image [article]

Chris Rockwell, David F. Fouhey, Justin Johnson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Recent advancements in differentiable rendering and 3D reasoning have driven exciting results in novel view synthesis from a single image. Despite realistic results, methods are limited to relatively small view change. In order to synthesize immersive scenes, models must also be able to extrapolate. We present an approach that fuses 3D reasoning with autoregressive modeling to outpaint large view changes in a 3D-consistent manner, enabling scene synthesis. We demonstrate considerable

Non-intrusive hydroxyl radical (OH) planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) measurements were obtained in configuration C of the University of Virginia supersonic combustion experiment. The combustion of hydrogen fuel injected through an unswept compression ramp into a supersonic cross-flow was imaged over a range of streamwise positions. Images were corrected for optical distortion, variations in the laser sheet profile, and different camera views. Results indicate an effect of fuel

The streamwise location of the reaction zone relative to the fuel injector was also found to be sensitive to the fuel equivalence ratio. The flow boundary conditions in the combustor section, which are sensitive to the fuel flow rate, are believed to have caused this effect. A combination of laser absorption and radiative trapping effects are proposed to have caused asymmetry observed in the images. The results complement previously published OH PLIF data obtained for configuration A along with other non-intrusive measurements to form a database for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model validation.

We have measured the minimum visible lesion (MVL) thresholds for porcine skin and determined the ED 50 for exposures at 1314 nm for 0.35 ms laser pulses. An in-vivo pigmented animal model, Yucatan mini-pig (Sus scrofa domestica), was used in this study. We also have measured the 2-D thermal response using a high-speed (100 frames per second) infrared camera for single-pulse temperature recordings for Gaussian beams of 1 mm diameter. In Vitro samples of the same pig skin were used for

A measured surface temperature distribution for one IR laser pulse of 0.37J at a spot size of 1.3 mm diameter gave approximately a 430 C rise at a hot spot. Computed temperature distributions as a function of time and space are presented and compared with the measured surface temperatures.
