A method for the 3D reconstruction of indoor scenes from monocular images
The recovery of the 3D structure of indoor scenes from a single image is an important goal of machine vision Therefore, a simple and reliable solution to this problem will have a great influence on many tasks in robotics, such as the autonomous navigation of a mobile vehicle in indoor environments.
This communication describes the recovery, in a reliable and robust way, of the 3D structure of a corridor and of obstacles from a sequence of images obtained by a T.V. camera moving through the corridor. The obtained 3D information can be used to extract the free space in the viewed scene in order to plan the trajectory of a mobile vehicle. This application is being worked on at the moment and the results will be illustrated in a future communication.
