Real-time Silhouette Intersection by Maintaining the Distribution of Occupancy

Odest Chadwicke Jenkins, Matthew Maverick Loper

July 2005


We present an approach to space carving based on adaptively sampling a propagated estimate of density in the shape of a dynamic environment. Our approach is designed to enable faster computational performance of shape carving, without requiring specialized hardware or code optimization, while maintaining a representative estimate of shape. We present results from comparing Matlab implementations of space carving using voxel grids and adaptive sampling for speed and shape distribution.
