Depth Estimation

While the paper contains an evaluation of depth estimation performance of our design in comparison to other coded-aperture strategies, this section provides details on the effect of different parameter choices on the accuracy of our approach. Moreover, we also include error maps for the test images that indicate which local regions in each image have higher error (the map shows the absolute mean error across all synthetically defocused versions). These error maps can be used to draw intuition about what kinds of image content will prove challenging to our depth estimation algorithm.



Error in pixels

Parameter Choices

Default  Mean Error: 3.0

Window Size (Default = 15)

 N = 7   Mean Error: 4.1

N = 21  Mean Error: 2.6

Larger window sizes always increase accu­racy, but lead to poorer localization.

Number of Orientations (Default = 4)

Only Horiz. and Vert.  Mean Error: 3.3

Derivative Scale (Default = 1)

s = 0.5  Mean Error: 4.2

s = 2     Mean Error: 3.1


We run the synthetic deconvolution experiment (similar to that described Fig. 5 in the paper), but on all test images and for a range of depths. Shown below are the mean reconstruction PSNRs for the different aperture codes.
