Join us at the 3DTV Conference 2018
ICT lab researcher Chen Qiao will be presenting our work on “Single-shot Dense Reconstruction with Epic-flow”. This work is co-authored with Chen Qiao, Charalambos Poullis.
In this paper we present a novel method for generating dense reconstructions by applying only structure-from-motion(SfM) on large-scale datasets without the need for multi-view stereo as a post-processing step. A state-of-the-art optical flow technique is used to generate dense matches. The matches are encoded such that verification for correctness becomes possible, and are stored in a database on-disk. The use of this out-of-core approach transfers the requirement for large memory space to disk, therefore allowing for the processing of even larger-scale datasets than before. We compare our approach with the state-of-the-art and present the results which verify our claims.
