Shape From Focus, Image Processing, 3D Shape Recovery.
Shape from focus is a method of 3D shape and depth estimation of an object from a sequence of pictures with changing focus settings. In this paper we propose a novel method of shape recovery, which was originally created for shape and position identification of glass pipette in medical hybrid robot. In proposed algorithm, Sum of Modified Laplacian is used as a focus operator. Each step of the algorithm is tested in order to pick the operators with the best results. Reconstruction allows not only to determine shape but also precisely define position of the object. The results of proposed method, performed on real objects, have shown the efficiency of this scheme.
