Toward Global Surface Reconstruction by Purposive Viewpoint Adjustment
K. N. Kutulakos and C. R. Dyer, Proc. Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conf., 1993, 726-727.
We consider the following problem: How should an observer change viewpoint in order to generate a dense image sequence of an arbitrary smooth surface so that it can be incrementally reconstructed using the occluding contour and the epipolar parameterization? We present a collection of qualitative behaviors that, when integrated appropriately, purposefully control viewpoint based on the appearance of the surface in order to provably solve this problem.
