  • Examines 3D surface reconstruction of strongly non-Lambertian surfaces by the combination of photometric stereo and active range scanning, with applications to industrial metrology
  • Discusses pose estimation and tracking of human body parts, and recognition of actions performed in a complex production environment
  • Reviews the construction of high-resolution lunar digital elevation models based on orbital imagery in combination with laser altimetry data

This indispensable text introduces the foundations of three-dimensional computer vision and describes recent contributions to the field.

Fully revised and updated, this much-anticipated new edition reviews a range of triangulation-based methods, including linear and bundle adjustment based approaches to scene reconstruction and camera calibration, stereo vision, point cloud segmentation, and pose estimation of rigid, articulated, and flexible objects. Also covered are intensity-based techniques that evaluate the pixel grey values in the image to infer three-dimensional scene structure, and point spread function based approaches that exploit the effect of the optical system. The text shows how methods which integrate these concepts are able to increase reconstruction accuracy and robustness, describing applications in industrial quality inspection and metrology, human-robot interaction, and remote sensing.

Practitioners of computer vision, photogrammetry, optical metrology, robotics and planetary science will find the book an essential reference.
