Bispectral analysis and recovery of images distorted by a moving water surface

Wen, Zhiying; Lambert, Andrew; Fraser, Donald; Li, Hongdong


We propose a new algorithm to recover a geometrically correct image of an object or scene from a set of images distorted by the wave motion of a water surface. Under mild conditions where the wavy surface normals weakly satisfy a Gaussian distribution, we demonstrate that the geometric distortion can be removed and a corrected image can be recovered. Our method is based on higher-order spectra analysis-in particular, the bispectrum, similar to its use in astronomical speckle imaging. In...[Show more]
