10a.014.SBU - Object Recognition Under Various Illumination Conditions

Project - Summary

The goal of this multi-year project is to design a convolutional neural network (CNN) using Tensorflow and/or Caffee to perform item recognition under various illumination conditions. The challenge is to perform item-recognition (inference) + other to be determined techniques in near real-time for partially obstructed items typically seen in realworld applications across various lighting conditions. Definition of the use case, examples of obstructed images (items held in hands or covered by clothing), camera hardware, and compute power will be provided by the project sponsor.

This is a multi-year project started in Year 9.

Project - Deliverables

1 Dataset Creation
2 3D Reconstruction
3 Design & validate object recognizer baseline
4 Shadow & shading removal model
5 Combine illumination correction & object recognizer

Project - Novelty of Approach

Stony Brook project will provide convolutional neural network (CNN) framework to be used to recognize items in near real-time for partially obstructed items typically seen in real-world applications across various lighting conditions, while current state of the art employs computer vision techniques.

Project - Benefits to IAB

  • Object recognition model with application in real-scenarios where non-uniform illumination effects its performance.
  • Shadow, shading, and illuminant removal framework will be useful to pre-process images for various other tasks.
  • Proposed dataset will be helpful for not only object recognition but also to learn different tasks such as shadow removal, object segmentation, etc.
