Abstract
Three-dimensional modeling of a scene from the automatic analysis of 2D image sequences is a big challenge for future interactive audiovisual services based on 3D content manipulation such as virtual vests, 3D teleconferencing and interactive television. We propose a scheme that computes 3D objects models from stereo analysis of image triplets shot by calibrated cameras. After matching the different views with a correlation based algorithm, a depth map referring to a given view is built by using a fusion criterion taking into account depth coherency, visibility constraints and correlation scores. Because luminance segmentation helps to compute accurate object borders and to detect and improve the unreliable depth values, a two steps segmentation algorithm using both depth map and graylevel image is applied to extract the objects masks. First an edge detection segments the luminance image in regions and a multimodal thresholding method selects depth classes from the depth map. Then the regions are merged and labelled with the different depth classes numbers by using a coherence test on depth values according to the rate of reliable and dominant depth values and the size of the regions. The structures of the segmented objects are obtained with a constrained Delaunay triangulation followed by a refining stage. Finally, texture mapping is performed using open inventor or VRML1.0 tools.
