Generalized Scene Reconstruction

Why can’t you point your smartphone at
everyday objects in everyday scenes to three-dimensionally process them?

The Problem

Current 3D scene reconstruction approaches cannot accurately and efficiently reconstruct everyday scenes and objects using mainstream devices like smartphones. Dozens of transformational 3D applications that impact almost every aspect of daily life are being blocked. A critical price/performance bottleneck exists.

The Solution

Quidient is actively demonstrating a spatial imaging platform that relieves the bottleneck once and for all, and defines a new tech category called Generalized Scene Reconstruction (GSR). Three convergent technologies are employed in Quidient’s solution: Light Field Physics, Plenoptic (5D) Databases, and AI/Machine Learning. The approach is pioneering and disruptive.

The Problem

Applications based on scene reconstruction have been “just around the corner” for years. So, what’s the holdup? Real 3D scenes like those pictured below often include reflective, transmissive, featureless and finely structured objects. Devices like smartphones simply cannot reconstruct generalized scenes like these.

The Solution

Quidient is conducting demonstrations that prove generalized scene reconstruction to be imminently viable. Five convergent technologies are employed in Quidient’s solution: Light Field Physics, Polarimetric Imaging, Plenoptic (5D) Databases, Hardware Acceleration and Subscene Streaming. The approach is pioneering and disruptive.

A Revealing Comparison

The Toy Boat shown in these videos is featureless and highly reflective. State-of-the-art multi-view photogrammetry shown on the left captures the boat but exhibits visible distortion. The reconstruction shown on the right replicates the boat much more accurately. The advantage shown in this comparison extends to generalized scenes.
