TCI Volume 5 Issue 2

Photometric stereo is a method that seeks to reconstruct the normal vectors of an object from a set of images of the object illuminated under different light sources. While effective in some situations, classical photometric stereo relies on a diffuse surface model that cannot handle objects with complex reflectance patterns, and it is sensitive to non-idealities in the images.

This paper presents a new robust PCA method for foreground-background separation on freely moving camera video with possible dense and sparse corruptions. Our proposed method registers the frames of the corrupted video and then encodes the varying perspective arising from camera motion as missing data in a global model. 

Camera-based face detection and verification have advanced to the point where they are ready to be integrated into myriad applications, from household appliances to Internet of Things devices to drones. Many of these applications impose stringent constraints on the form-factor, weight, and cost of the camera package that cannot be met by current-generation lens-based imagers.

The recently introduced Spatial Spectral Compressive Spectral Imager (SSCSI) has been proposed as an alternative to carry out spatial and spectral coding using a binary ON-OFF coded aperture. In SSCSI, the pixel pitch size of the coded aperture, as well as its location with respect to the detector array, plays a critical role in the quality of image reconstruction. In this paper, a rigorous discretization model for this architecture is developed, based on a light propagation analysis across the imager.
