Shape-from-Silhouette with Two Mirrors and an Uncalibrated Camera
Two planar mirrors are positioned to show five views of an object, and snapshots are captured from different viewpoints. We present closed form solutions for calculating the focal length, principal point, mirror and camera poses directly from the silhouette outlines of the object and its reflections. In the noisy case, these equations are used to form initial parameter estimates that are refined using iterative minimisation. The self-calibration allows the visual cones from each silhouette to be specified in a common reference frame so that the visual hull can be constructed. The proposed setup provides a simple method for creating 3D multimedia content that does not rely on specialised equipment. Experimental results demonstrate the reconstruction of a toy horse and a locust from real images. Synthetic images are used to quantify the sensitivity of the self-calibration to quantisation noise. In terms of the silhouette calibration ratio, degradation in silhouette quality has a greater ...
