Publisher Comments:

Computer vision researchers have been frustrated in their attempts to automatically derive depth information from conventional two-dimensional intensity images. Research on shape from texture, shape from shading, and shape from focus is still in a laboratory stage and had not seen much use in commercial machine vision systems. A range image or a depth map contains explicit information about the distance from the sensor to the object surfaces within the field of view in the scene. Information about surface geometry which is important for, say, three-dimensional object recognition is more easily extracted from 2 1/2 D range images than from 2D intensity images. As a result, both active sensors such as laser range finders and passive techniques such as multi-camera stereo vision are being increasingly utilized by vision researchers to solve a variety of problems. This book contains chapters written by distinguished computer vision researchers covering the following areas: Overview of 3D Vision Range Sensing Geometric Processing Object Recognition Navigation Inspection Multisensor Fusion A workshop report, written by the editors, also appears in the book. It summarizes the state of the art and proposes future research directions in range image sensing, processing, interpretation, and applications. The book also contains an extensive, up-to-date bibliography on the above topics. This book provides a unique perspective on the problem of three-dimensional sensing and processing; it is the only comprehensive collection of papers devoted to range images. Both academic researchers interested in research issues in 3D vision and industrial engineers in search of solutions to particular problems will find this a useful reference book.

Book News Annotation:

Seven papers and a summary of the proceedings from a workshop at East Lansing, Michigan, March 1989. Explores two-image techniques of providing machine vision with the information to determine distance from the lens(es), useful in various industrial processes, and in navigation. The topics include an overview of binocular stereopsis, range sensing, geometric signal processing, 3D object recognition, navigation, inspection, and multisensor fusion. No index.
