Abstract

New computational cameras and projectors form the convergence of optics, electronics, and signal processing to extract more information about the visual world around us. In this talk, we will discuss a new type of projector-camera system that selectively parses the light transport in a scene, yielding new information about indirectlight interactions including interreflections and subsurface scattering. This enables new applications including material recognition, real-time vein visualization, and imaging through scattering media.

In addition, we show the use of a projector-camera system for adaptive lighting in non-line-of-sight imaging. All this research points to exciting new opportunities for physics-based imaging and vision in our visual computing systems of the future.
