1 CSE252a, Fall 2010 Computer Vision I Introduction to Computer Vision CSE 252a Lecture 10 CSE252a, Fall 2010 Computer Vision I Announcements • HW2 is assigned CSE252A The Illumination Cone Theorem: : The set of images of any object in fixed posed, but under all lighting conditions, is a convex cone in the image space. (Belhumeur and Kriegman, IJCV, 98) Single light source images lie on cone boundary 2-light source image x 1 x 2 x n CSE252A Some natural ideas & questions • Can the cones of two different objects intersect? • Can two different objects have the same cone? • How big is the cone? • How can cone be used for recognition? x 1 x x n CSE252A Do Ambiguities Exist? Can two objects of differing shapes produce the same illumination cone? Object 1 Object 2 YES CSE252A Generalized Bas-Relief Transformations Objects differing by a GBR have the same illumination cone.

2 CSE252A Uncalibrated photometric stereo 1. Take n images as input, perform SVD to compute B*. 2. Find some A such that B*A is close to integrable. 3. Integrate resulting gradient field to obtain height function f*(x,y). Comments: f*(x,y) differs from f(x,y) by a GBR. Can use specularities to resolve GBR for non- Lambertian surface.

3 CSE252a, Fall 2010 Computer Vision I The appearance of colors • Color appearance is strongly affected by (at least): – Spectrum of lighting striking the retina – other nearby colors (space) – adaptation to previous views (time) – “state of mind” CSE252a, Fall 2010 Computer Vision I
