3D Shape Reconstruction of an Object in the Air


3D sensing has attracted a great deal of attention in several disciplines including humanoid robots and bin picking robots.

In this research, we propose an entirely new method for the simultaneous estimations of an object's rotation axis, rotation angle and 3D shape. In this method, an object is rotated and a high-speed vision captures its motion. Then, we estimate the object's rotation axis and rotation angle by using its silhouette, and simultaneously we reconstruct the object's 3D shape using space carving method.
