Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel model-based visibility measure for geometric primitives called visibility map. It is simple to calculate, memory efficient, accurate for viewpoints outside the convex hull of the object and versatile in terms of possible applications. Several useful properties of visibility maps that show their superiority to existing visibility measures are derived. Various example applications from the automotive industry where the presented measure is used successfully conclude the paper.
