Abstract

In this paper, we present a spectral intrinsic image decomposition (SIID) model, which is dedicated to resolve a natural scene into its purely independent intrinsic components: illumination, shading, and reflectance. By introducing spectral information, our work can solve many challenging cases, such as scenes with metameric effects, which are hard to tackle for trichromatic intrinsic image decomposition (IID), and thus offers potential benefits to many higher-level vision tasks, e.g., materials classification and recognition, shape-from-shading, and spectral image relighting. A both effective and efficient algorithm is presented to decompose a spectral image into its independent intrinsic components. To facilitate future SIID research, we present a public dataset with ground-truth illumination, shading, reflectance and specularity, and a meaningful error metric, so that the quantitative comparison becomes achievable. The experiments on this dataset and other images demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of the proposed method on diverse scenes, and reveal that more spectral channels indeed facilitate the vision task (i.e., segmentation and recognition).
