Another application is the insertion of synthetic objects intoan existing video sequence. The total number of images in C is assumed to be N.

An important part of the SfM algorithm is bundle adjustment. This task is frequently carried outin movie making but is then performed with a great deal ofexpensive manual work. MVS When the positions and orientations of the cameras are known, the MVS algorithm can reconstruct the 3D structure of a scene by using multiple-view images. MicMac—A free, open-source solution for photogrammetry. Table 2 Running Time Comparison. Thesecontributions are presented as appended papers to enable theexperienced reader to easily study the novelty of the thesis.

In this field, many researchers have proposed several methods and theories [ 1234567891011121314151617 ]. The estimated depth maps are obtained from the mesh data generated by the sparse feature points. Table 1 Information for the Unclaibrated Image Data. In order to test the accuracy of the 3D point cloud data obtained by the algorithm proposed in this study, we compared the point cloud generated by our algorithm PC with the standard point cloud PC STL which is captured by structured light scans The RMS error of all ground truth poses is within 0.

When we use bundle adjustment to optimize the parameters, we must keep the control points unchanged or with as little change as possible. Bundle adjustment itself is a nonlinear least-squares problem that optimizes the camera and structural parameters; the calculation time sequfnces increase because of the increase in the number of parameters.

Kinds of improved SLAM algorithms have been proposed to adapt to different applications. Among the incremental SfM, hierarchical SfM, and global SfM, the incremental SfM is the most popular strategy for the reconstruction of uncalibratex images.


Automatic Dense Reconstruction from Uncalibrated Video Sequences

Speed Evaluation In order to test the speed of the proposed algorithm, we compared the time consumed by our method with those consumed by openMVG and MicMac. And d is standard point cloud provided by roboimagedata.

The calculation of the bundle adjustment is a nonlinear least-squares problem. A paradigm for model fitting with applications to image analysis and automated sequrnces. This method constructs a fixed-size image queue and places key images into the queue until full. Second, these key images are inserted into a fixed-length image queue. The SIFT [ 19 ] feature detection algorithm is used to detect the feature points on all images in the queue, and the correspondence of the feature points are then obtained by the feature point matching [ 20 ] between every two images in the queue.

Rapid 3D Reconstruction for Image Sequence Acquired from UAV Camera

This thesis describes a system that completely automaticallybuilds a three-dimensional model of a scene given a sequence ofimages of the scene.

Multiple View Geometry in Computer Vision. Finally, the structure of all of the images can be calculated by repeating the following two procedures alternately: Without priors, MAP estimation reduces to maximum-likelihood estimation. Selecting Key Images In order to complete the dense reconstruction of the point cloud and improve the computational speed, the key images which are suitable for the structural calculation must first be selected from a large number of UAV video images captured by a camera.

This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution CC BY license http: The flight distance is around m. Three principal component points PCPs can be generated from PCA, each reflecting the distribution of the feature points in different images. The result is presented in Figure 2 c. Finally, dense 3D point cloud data of the scene are obtained by using depth—map fusion. The proposed approach first compresses the feature points of each image into three principal component points by using the principal component analysis method.

Distance histograms in Figure 9 a—c is statistics results of distance point cloud in Figure 8 a—c.

The distance point clouds are shown in Figure 8 a—c. Figure 6 a—e present some of the outdoor images different resolution images taken with the same camera taken from a camera carried by the DJI Phantom 4 Pro UAV camera hardware: In order to test the accuracy and speed of the algorithm proposed in this study, real outdoor photographic images taken from a camera fromm on a UAV and standard images together with standard point cloud provided by roboimagedata [ 27 ] are used to reconstruct various dense 3D point clouds.


With this structural information, the depth maps of these images can be calculated.

These contributions include the work of Liu et al. Improving the recojstruction of the algorithm in parameter selection is also part of our future work. Finally, all of the parameters from the structure calculation are optimized by bundle adjustment. The patch-based matching method is used to match other pixels between images.

The flight height is around 90 m and is kept unchanged. Contributions are also made to several vense, most notably in dealing with variable amounts ofmotion between frames, auto-calibration and densereconstruction from a large number of images. Different color means different value of distance.

Urban 3D Modelling from Video

And the number of points in point cloud is 4, As the number of images and their resolution increase, the computational times of the algorithms will increase significantly, limiting them in some high-speed reconstruction applications.

First, a principal component analysis method of the feature points is used to select the key images suitable for 3D reconstruction, which ensures that the algorithm automatiic the calculation speed with almost no loss of accuracy.

This problem can be addressed by using control points, which are the points connecting two sets of adjacent feature points of the image, as shown in Figure 5. The image queue SfM includes recosntruction steps. For two consecutive key images, they must meet the key image constraint denoted as R I 1I 2 if they have a sufficient overlap area. Literature Review The general demse reconstruction algorithm without a priori positions and orientation information can be roughly divided into two steps.

For each example, Figure 18 a shows some of the images used for 3D reconstruction.
