Incremental Line-based 3D Reconstruction using Geometric Constraints

Incremental Line-based 3D Reconstruction using Geometric Constraints

This video was recorded at British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC), Bristol 2013. Generating accurate 3D models for man-made environments can be a challenging task due to the presence of texture-less objects or wiry structures. Since traditional point-based 3D reconstruction approaches may fail to integrate these structures into the resulting point cloud, a different feature representation is necessary. We present a novel approach which uses point features for camera estimation and additional line segments for 3D reconstruction. To avoid appearance-based line matching, we use purely geometric constraints for hypothesis generation and verification. Therefore, the proposed method is able to reconstruct both wiry structures as well as solid objects. The algorithm is designed to generate... Show More
