Advanced Shape from Shading Methods
This project intends to explore the combination of new techniques from related research areas and state-of-the-art SFS algorithms to improve robustness and feature preservation in shape recovery from single but sophisticated real-world image. The overall aims are twofold. The first is to develop new SFS algorithms which preserve features and provide mechanisms to manipulate the base and detail levels of the shapes during shape recovery. The second is to explore applications of these new SFS algorithms.
