Abstract

A technique to generate a photorealistic three-dimensional (3D) image and color-textured model using a dedicated optical digitizer is presented. The proposed technique is started with the range and texture image acquisition from different viewpoints, followed by the registration and integration of multiple range images to get a complete and nonredundant point cloud that represents a real-life object. The accuracy of the range image and the precision of correspondence between the range image and texture image are guaranteed by sensor system calibration. Based on the point cloud, a geometric model is established by considering the connectivity of adjacent range image points. In order to enhance the photorealistic effect, we suggest a texture blending technique that utilizes a composite-weight strategy to blend the texture images within the overlapped region. This technique allows more efficient removal of the artifacts existing in the registered texture image, leading to a 3D image with photorealistic quality and color-texture modeling. Experimental results are also presented to testify to the validity of the proposed method.
