CSIRO patenting its new Smart Vision tech that transforms 2D images into 3D images

CSIRO patenting its new Smart Vision tech that transforms 2D images into 3D imagesAustralia's national science agency CSIRO has announced that a series of patents have been filed by the agency for its new Smart Vision technology which has the capability to transform 2D images from a smartphone or tablet into a 3D image.

According to the information shared by CSIRO, the Smart Vision technology which the agency is patenting can read the 2D pixels from an image; and can then transform the pixels into a real-time 3D face-sensing model.

Explaining the new technology, Simon Lucey - Group Research Leader for CSIRO's Digital Productivity and Services Flagship - revealed that the technology also boasts the ability to calculate size; thereby unfolding a more realistic and individual experience for each user.

The Smart Vision demonstration video from CSIRO shows that the 3D face-sensing model using the new technology is created from three images --- a front-on shot, as well as two images from the user turning to their right and left.

About Smart Vision technology, Lucey said: "Our computer modelling experts have developed a more accurate and reliable way to create a 3D scan of a person's face using newly developed algorithms that can turn 2D images from a mobile camera into a 3D model of the face."
