ECHEVERRI A., Jaime A.; CANAVERAL URIBE, Rodrigo and VELEZ VASQUEZ, Alexánder. RECONSTRUCTION OF FACES FROM RANGE IMAGES THROUGH COMPACT SUPPORT RADIAL BASIS FUNCTIONS. Rev. ing. univ. Medellin [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.11, pp. 199-207. ISSN 1692-3324.
In previous works, we have explored several radial basis techniques and functions for the reconstruction of surfaces. We now present the use of compact support radial basis functions for the tri-dimensional reconstruction of human faces. Therefore, we present algorithms and results coming from the application of compact support radial basis functions which have revealed comparative advantages in terms of the amount of time needed for the construction of an interpolant to be used in the reconstruction. We are also presenting some comparisons with techniques widely used in this field and we explain in detail the global process for the surfaces reconstruction.
