Robust enhancement of depth images from Kinect sensor


Islam, A B M Tariqul; Scheel, Christian; Staadt, Oliver; Pajarola, R (2015). Robust enhancement of depth images from Kinect sensor. In: IEEE Virtual Reality Conference, Arles, Camargue, Provence, France, 23 April 2015 - 27 April 2015, 197-198.

Abstract

We propose a new method to fill missing or invalid values in depth images generated from the Kinect depth sensor. To fill the missing depth values, we use a robust least median of squares (LMedS) approach. We apply our method for telepresence environments, where Kinects are used very often for reconstructing the captured scene in 3D. We introduce a modified 1D LMedS approach for efficient traversal of consecutive image frames. Our approach solves the unstable nature of depth values in static scenes that is perceived as flickering. We obtain very good result both for static and moving objects inside a scene.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
