Fast and Accurate 3D Edge Detection for Surface Reconstruction
Although edge detection is a well investigated topic, 3D edge detectors mostly lack either accuracy or speed. We will show, how to build a highly accurate subvoxel edge detector, which is fast enough for practical applications. In contrast to other approaches we use a spline interpolation in order to have an efficient approximation of the theoretically ideal sinc interpolator. We give theoretical bounds for the accuracy and show experimentally that our approach reaches these bounds while the often-used subpixel-accurate parabola fit leads to much higher edge displacements.
