Abstract

To merge multiple range data obtained by range scanners, filling holes caused by unmeasured regions, the space carving method is a simple and effective method. However, this method often fails if the number of the input range images is small, because unseen voxels that are not carved out remains in the volume area. In this paper, we propose an improved algorithm of the space carving method that produces stable results. In the proposed method, a discriminant function defined on volume space is used to estimate whether each voxel is inside or outside the objects. Also, in particular case that the range images are obtained by active stereo method, the information of the positions of the light sources can be used to improve the accuracy of the results.
