The Man Identifier on the CELL
We begun to implement our man identifier program on the CELL. At the time of the trade fair “Vision 2007” at Stuttgart about half of the work was already done: in this movie you see human beings reconstructed in part (head, shoulder, part of the arms).
Properties of this program:
- The program is about 20 times faster on the CELL than on a conventional PC. It takes about 0.3 seconds to fully reconstruct an image (in stereo!)
- Each single image is fully reconstructed, there is no motion detection – our program will run also on single images.
The input is from two video cameras, therefore we can measure the distance of the persons from the camera (the 3d reconstruction takes about 0.03 seconds)
