9a.014.SBU - Object Recognition Under Various Illumination Conditions

Project - Summary


  • Build a robust and real-time object recognition model that generalizes well under various challenging illumination conditions such as shadows or non-uniform lighting.
  • Take physical properties of the objects and scenes, such as 3D geometry, material, light color into account to remove the illumination factors from an image.
  • Collect a dataset of large number of object classes with non-uniform illumination.
  • Design and validate an object recognition neural network which incorporates the physical properties of objects.

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 - Deliverables

1 Joint estimation using graphical models and novel shadow cues
2 Inference on not only illumination and cast shadows but also on the scene's geometry
3 Single image shadow detection based on learning

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.
