Unformatted text preview: o 3d shapes stored as actual 3d models o Represented as arrangements of simple parts called “geons” 1. shape of cross section (round, symmetric, etc) 2. size of cross section (constant or expanding) 3. curvature of shape o Why? Geons are recognizable from almost any viewpoint and under partial occlusion. They operate much like phonemes, creating a large “vocabulary” of complex 3d shapes o Why not? Recognition of a geon also depends on viewpoint. Human recognition is not viewpoint invariant (takes more time to recognize, make more errors). Also cannot account for subordinate-level recognition (all dogs share same geons) VIEW-BASED RECOGNITION (“VBR”) • Multiple views from different angles view = 2d snapshot • All snapshots stored in memory...
