3D Reconstruction refers to the process of creating a digital representation of a real-world object, scene, or environment in three-dimensional space. It involves capturing and processing data to generate a 3D model that accurately depicts the shape, structure, and spatial relationships of the subject being reconstructed. This technique is widely used in various fields, including computer graphics, computer vision, archaeology, medical imaging, and more.


NeurOCS: Neural NOCS Supervision for Monocular 3D Object Localization

NeurOCS: Neural NOCS Supervision for Monocular 3D Object Localization Monocular 3D object localization in driving scenes is a crucial task, but challenging due to its ill-posed nature. Estimating 3D coordinates for each pixel on the object surface holds great potential as it provides dense 2D-3D geometric constraints for the underlying PnP problem. However, high-quality ground truth supervision is not available in driving scenes due to sparsity and various artifacts of Lidar data, as well as the practical infeasibility of collecting per-instance CAD models. In this work, we present NeurOCS, a framework that uses instance masks and 3D boxes as input to learn 3D object shapes by means of differentiable rendering, which further serves as supervision for learning dense object coordinates. Our approach rests on insights in learning a category-level shape prior directly from real driving scenes, while properly handling single-view ambiguities. Furthermore, we study and make critical design choices to learn object coordinates more effectively from an object-centric view. Altogether, our framework leads to new state-of-the-art in monocular 3D localization that ranks 1st on the KITTI-Object benchmark among published monocular methods.
