Reflection Removal for Images and 3D Point Clouds
We often capture images of a target scene through glass. For example, we take photographs of the products displayed in the show window, or take photographs of buildings with glass curtain walls. The captured glass image includes the target scene behind the glass as well as undesired reflected scene in front of the glass, since light passes through and is reflected on a pane of glass simultaneously. Such reflection artifacts may degrade the performance of image processing and computer vision techniques when applied to glass images. In this seminar, we first talk about an automatic reflection removal algorithm for multiple glass images taken at slightly different camera locations. Also, with the advent of high-performance LiDAR scanners, large-scale 3D point clouds (LS3DPCs) for real-world scenes are being used in challenging applications. However, LS3DPCs captured by terrestrial LiDAR scanners also suffer from the reflection artifacts since many outdoor real-world structures include glasses. As a next topic, we
define a problem of reflection in LS3DPCs and introduce our current research work on reflection removal for LS3DPCs.
