In this research, we present a high-speed, occlusion-robust marker-based 3D tracking method achieved by only using a monocular monochrome image. The objective of our research is to develop an automatic marker design method for any 3D shape and an effective framework for stabilizing tracking at high throughput by extending the latest promising work based on Deformable Dot Cluster Marker.
Furthermore, this tracking method was used in combination with a high-speed projector, both of which can achieve high throughput and low latency, on the order of milliseconds. This enabled us to realize a high-quality computational display capable of representing the material appearance of a dynamically moving target (TransMaterial) . The demonstration showed that the effect of a dynamically changing appearance with nearly imperceptible latency drastically enriches the sense of immersion in the recognition of augmented materials with the naked eye.
