Received Nov 23; Accepted Jan This method estimates the 3D coordinates of the initial points by matching the difference of Gaussians and Harris corner points between different images, followed by patch expansion, point filtering, and other processing.

Rapid 3D Reconstruction for Image Sequence Acquired from UAV Camera

The final results accurately reproduce the appearance of the scenes. The PCPs can reflect the distribution of the feature points in the image. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. The distance point cloud is obtained after the distance calculation of each point and marked with different color. The process steps are as follows. In order to reconstruct the 3D structure of scenes using image sequences, we propose a rapid and accurate 3D reconstruction method based on an image queue.

As is vodeo in Table 2. This step is usually completed by generating a dense point data cloud or mesh data cloud from multiple images.

The SfM algorithm is limited in many applications because of the time-consuming calculation. Incremental smoothing and mapping using the Bayes tree. 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. It is assumed that the images used ivdeo reconstruction are rich in texture.


Rapid 3D Reconstruction for Image Sequence Acquired from UAV Camera

Then, the pixels of the feature points marked as U k of the images in C k are detected, and the pixels in U k and U r are matched. The problem addressed in this step is generally referred to as the SfM problem.

The principal component points PCPs are obtained from these vectors Equations 3 and 4. The projection matrix of the images in C k can be estimated by the projection relationship between P c and U kc ; then, the positions and orientations of the cameras can be calculated.

Some of uuncalibrated are used for vision-based navigation and mapping. Scene reconstruction and visualization from community photo collections.

In addition, the research into Real-time simultaneous localization and mapping SLAM and 3D reconstruction of the environment have become popular over the past few years. This is a method for estimating the overlap areas between images, and it is not necessary to calculate the actual correlation between the two images when selecting key images. In contrast, P c can be used in the later weighted bundle uncalinrated to ensure the continuity of the sequencds.

Our method divides a global bundle adjustment calculation into several local bundle adjustment calculations, greatly improving the calculation speed of the algorithm and making the qutomatic continuous. In order to reduce the computational complexity of feature point matching, we propose a method of compressing the feature points based on principal component analysis PCA. We propose the use of the incremental SfM algorithm.

Our future work will be aimed at cumulative errors elimination and will obtain higher accuracy. The SIFT [ 19 ] feature detection algorithm is used to detect uncalibratrd 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.


This method constructs a fixed-size image queue and places key images into the queue until full. There are several motivations for constructing systems automatlc proposed type.

Structure from motion SfM calculation of the images in the queue. Finally, a dense 3D point cloud can be dnse using the depth—map fusion method. We delete k images at the front of the queue, save their structural information, and then recnostruction k new images at the tail of the queue; these k images are then recorded as a set C k. Among the incremental SfM, hierarchical SfM, and global SfM, the incremental SfM is the most popular strategy for the reconstruction of unordered images.

We obtain the correspondence M: Adaptive structure from motion with vjdeo contrario model estimation; Proceedings of the Asian Conference on Computer Vision; Daejeon, Korea. Three principal component points PCPs can be generated from PCA, each reflecting the distribution of the feature points in different images.

When m is chosen as a smaller number, the speed increases, but the precision decreases correspondingly.

Contributions are also made to several systemcomponents, most notably in dealing with variable amounts ofmotion between frames, auto-calibration and densereconstruction from a large number of images. 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.

The structural calculation of the images in the queue is then repeated until all images are processed. The first two terms of radial and tangential distortion parameters are also obtained and used for image rectification.
