Capturing scenery depth information is a fundamental task in computer vision. Applications in manufacturing, security and surveillance, product quality control, robotic navigation, and three-dimensional (3D) media entertainment rely on accurate depth data. Dedicated range sensors, such as the Time-of-Flight camera (ToF), can simplify the scene depth capture process and overcome short-comings of traditional approaches.
On this page we provide selected evaluation sequences for our proposed Weighted Optimization Approach to Time-of-Flight Super Resolution, accompanying our publication . Furthermore we provide the original ToF data and necessary data for the MPEG View Synthesis Reference Software” (VSRS) , so fellow researchers can relate to our work. The full evaluation of our approach will be available as soon as it is published .
