Abstract

We present a probabilistic, online, depth map fusion framework, whose generative model for the sensor measurement process accurately incorporates both long-range visibility constraints and a spatially varying, probabilistic outlier model. In addition, we propose an inference algorithm that updates the state variables of this model in linear time each frame. Our detailed evaluation compares our approach against several others, demonstrating and explaining the improvements that this model offers, as well as highlighting a problem with all current methods: systemic bias.
