Author Affiliations +
This paper presents an approach for directly depth from multiple camera images based on directly estimating the scene in 3D space. We provide a framework that can include any arrangement of camera system, ranging from isolated sensor of very few light detectors to arrays of conventional pixellated cameras. We consider the resolution limits achievable by different camera configurations. Incorporating prior information about the 3D world improves our surface estimates allows us to reconstruct parts of a viewed scene which are partially occluded. Results for real imagery are presented.
