Alignment of Continuous Video onto 3D Point Clouds

Alignment of Continuous Video onto 3D Point Clouds
We propose a general framework for aligning continuous (oblique) video onto 3D sensor data. We align a point cloud computed from the video onto the point cloud directly obtained from a 3D sensor. This is in contrast to existing techniques where the 2D images are aligned to a 3D model derived from the 3D sensor data. Using point clouds enables the alignment for scenes full of objects that are difficult to model, for example, trees. To compute 3D point clouds from video, motion stereo is used along with a state-of-the-art algorithm for camera pose estimation. Our experiments with real data demonstrate the advantages of the proposed registration algorithm for texturing models in large-scale semi-urban environments. The capability to align video before a 3D model is built from the 3D sensor data opens up new possibilities for 3D modeling. We introduce a novel modelingthrough-registration approach that fuses 3D information from both the 3D sensor and the video. Initial experiments with rea...
