Scene Estimation From a Swiped Image

By: 
Michael Lawson; Mike Brookes; Pier Luigi Dragotti

The image blurring that results from moving a camera with the shutter open is normally regarded as undesirable. However, the blurring of the images encapsulates information that can be extracted to recover the light rays present within the scene. Given the correct recovery of the light rays that resulted in a blurred image, it is possible to reconstruct images of the scene from different camera locations. Therefore, rather than resharpening an image with motion blur, the goal of this paper is to recover the information needed to resynthesize images of the scene from different viewpoints. Estimation of the light rays within a scene is achieved by using a layer-based model to represent objects in the scene as layers, and by using an extended level set method to segment the blurred image into planes at different depths. The algorithm described in this paper has been evaluated on real and synthetic images to produce an estimate of the underlying epipolar plane image.
