Mixed Pixel Restoration
Mixed pixels are errors that can occur around the edges of objects in range image captures. These errors are caused by scattering and interference from multiple light sources. The occurrence of mixed pixels can negatively affect the accuracy of depth data and the overall quality of the image. The Mixed Pixel Restoration technique is a method for improving the quality of range image captures by reducing errors and distortions caused by multi-path interference.
The Mixed Pixel Restoration technique is valuable in the following range imaging applications:
- Object recognition, where definitive object edges are important.
- Metrology, where accuracy is important.
- Image captures in scenes with high contract objects, where scattering interference is common.
- Improves accuracy of image captures by removing errors and distortions caused by multi-path and scattering interference.
- Removes incorrect depth measurements and sharpens object edges in image captures.
