3D watertight mesh generation with uncertainties from ubiquitous data

logo.png

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a generic framework for watertight mesh generation with uncertainties that provides a confidence measure on each reconstructed mesh triangle. Its input is a set of vision-based or Lidar-based 3D measurements which are converted to a set of mass functions that characterize the level of ...

Extending α-expansion to a larger set of regularization functions

logo.png

Abstract

Many problems of image processing lead to the minimization of an energy, which is a function of one or several given images, with respect to a binary or multi-label image. When this energy is made of unary data terms and of pairwise regularization terms, and when the pairwise regularization ...

Graduate non convexity approach for robust fitting

newtongnc.gif

This example shows the estimation of the mean with the graduate non convexity approach using a newton optimization at each step for locally minimizing the energy. Green points are a realization of a normal distribution (vertical line shows the mean), red crosses are outliers. The blue line is the normalized ...

Quadratic pseudo boolean optimization introduction

Graph-based algorithms have been used for a decade in many applications for optimization. It produces very good results. First used empirically in image processing, it has been shown that graph-based approach algorithms in image processing are a reduction of optimizing pseudo Boolean function in binary case. In pseudo Boolean optimization ...
