Robust surface reconstruction using interval analysis over volumetric octree.
Abstract: This paper presents a method for modeling the surface of an object from a sequence of range maps. Our method is based on a volumetric approach that produces a compact surface without boundary. It provides robustness through the use of interval analysis techniques and computational efficiency through hierarchical processing using octrees.
Hindsights: Unlike most volumetric integration techniques, this one does not require storage of the whole volume.
