Depth Reconstruction of Low-Texture Surfaces from a Single View

We propose a deep learning-based method for recovering depth maps and normal vectors of low-texture surfaces from a single RGB image. Our approach relies on an autoencoding network with multiple decoders which are trained jointly. It is based on a semantic segmentation network, called SegNet, with design modifications intended to speed up training. We demonstrate that despite reducing the network parameters and training time significantly, our performance is still comparable to the original network. We also present a new dataset of depth maps and surface normals for texture-less surfaces.


Around 12 thousand synchronised RGB images, along with depth maps and surface normal maps for various textureless surfaces, obtained using a Microsoft Kinect v2 camera in real world. The dataset is available for download here.
