BFS-Solo enables high-speed book digitization using monocular video captured while the paper is deformed. Our original method can reconstruct the 3D deformation and restore a flat document image by taking into account the physical constraints on deformation for a sheet of paper from the monocular image sequence. This system allows flexibility of configuration for high-speed book digitization, anywhere and anytime. BFS-Solo is designed for a simple and convenient style of book digitization for personal use, and the design concept is different from BFS-Auto which is an automatic and high-performance system for professional use. The principle introduced in this system is totally different from the BFS-Auto principle. Toward the practical use, BFS-Solo is planned to be designed to be used under the copyright law.
