Open Access Warping-based Motion Artefact Compensation for Multi-Line Scan Light Field Imaging

This work focuses on the compensation of motion artefacts that may occur during a line scan acquisition and can be detected with our multi-line scan imaging system [10]. These artefacts are caused by fluctuations of the transport velocity that are not correctly reflected by the camera trigger, and are especially visible at high magnifications. We reduce such artefacts by analyzing the light field acquired with our system. Specifically, we use a variational formulation to design a warping function, such that lines that are acquired too early or too late are stretched or squeezed appropriately. To this end, we exploit the information comprised in the light field, i.e., control the estimation of the warping function by comparing light field views and enforce uniform spacing between line acquisitions. The proposed approach enables our system to perform the multi-line scan light field imaging at virtually any magnification independent from the transport and trigger quality. We demonstrate the capabilities of our approach for various objects by comparing 3D reconstructions from unprocessed acquisitions and our corrected acquisitions. Our approach significantly reduces artefacts in light fields and in 3D reconstructions that are generated from them.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
