Microsoft toying with deblurring technology for cameras

Posted on Monday, August 02 2010 @ 21:50:22 CEST by

Microsoft researchers have demonstrated a new deblurring technology that uses inertial measurement sensors and an “aided blind-deconvolution” algorithm to automatically deblur images with spatially-varying blurs.
We present a deblurring algorithm that uses a hardware attachment coupled with a natural image prior to deblur images from consumer cameras. Our approach uses a combination of inexpensive gyroscopes and accelerometers in an energy optimization framework to estimate a blur function from the camera’s acceleration and angular velocity during an exposure. We solve for the camera motion at a high sampling rate during an exposure and infer the latent image using a joint optimization. Our method is completely automatic, handles per-pixel, spatially-varying blur, and out-performs the current leading image-based methods. Our experiments show that it handles large kernels – up to at least 100 pixels, with a typical size of 30 pixels. We also present a method to perform “ground-truth” measurements of camera motion blur. We use this method to validate our hardware and deconvolution approach. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work that uses 6 DOF inertial sensors for dense, per-pixel spatially-varying image deblurring and the first work to gather dense ground-truth measurements for camera-shake blur.
Here's a sample of the capabilities of the technology, you can check out some higher-res results over here.
