Abstract

A three-dimensional (3-D) scene may contain foreground objects which partially occlude background objects. In this paper, we present experiments on reconstruction of the unobstructed view of the background objects from a partially occluded 3-D scene using an integral imaging system. We have reconstructed images of the scene at various distances of interest through computational and optical integral imaging reconstruction in order to obtain images of the occluding foreground objects and partially occluded background objects.
