Shape models from image sequences
This paper describes an adaptive method for the recovery of 3-D shape models from sequences of images. A 3-D surface model, initialised to be spherical, is progressively deformed under the action of simulated external forces arising from the profile of the target object in successive images, obtained using a low-level motion segmentation algorithm. Intrinsic constraints encourage the model to deform smoothly and to remain symmetrical about a vertical plane parallel to the direction of motion.
