LAMP: 3D Layered, Adaptive-resolution and Multi-perspective Panorama
Project Status: Complete (Years: 1997 – 2001)
The goal of this work is to construct a layered and panoramic representation of a large-scale 3D scene with occlusion from translating video sequences. We are actually solving four problems: 1) how to generate seamless panoramic view images (PVIs) and epipolar plane images (EPIs) from video under a more general motion than a pure translation; 2) how to analyze the huge amount of data in EPIs robustly and efficiently to obtain dense depth information; 3) how to enhance resolution and recover occlusions in a PVI representation; and 4) how to represent a large scale 3D scene with occlusions efficiently and compactly.
