Description & Coverage
Description:

Over the last decade, significant progress has been made in 3D imaging research. As a result, 3D imaging methods and techniques are being employed for various applications, including 3D television, intelligent robotics, medical imaging, and stereovision.

Depth Map and 3D Imaging Applications: Algorithms and Technologies present various 3D algorithms developed in the recent years and to investigate the application of 3D methods in various domains. Containing five sections, this book offers perspectives on 3D imaging algorithms, 3D shape recovery, stereoscopic vision and autostereoscopic vision, 3D vision for robotic applications, and 3D imaging applications. This book is an important resource for professionals, scientists, researchers, academics, and software engineers in image/video processing and computer vision.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D Map Segment Registration
  • 3D Scene Reconstruction
  • 3D Shape Compression
  • Digitally Reconstructed Holographic Images
  • Genetic Programming
  • Image Focus Measures
  • Iterative Reconstruction
  • Modular Stereo Vision
  • Stereoscopic Vision
  • Watermarking in Stereo Imaging
Reviews & Statements

Modern technology has at last matured enough to allow us to record the 3D world as such, with an enormous range of applications: from medicine and cave technology for oil exploration, to entertainment and the 3D television. This book is dedicated exactly to these modern technologies, which fascinate and excite. Enjoy it!
