Abstract
An iterative algorithm is presented that simultaneously recovers the actual shape and the actual reflectance from the pseudo estimates. The recovery algorithm works on Lambertian surfaces of arbitrary shape with possibly varying and unknown reflectance. The general behavior of the algorithm and its convergence properties are discussed. Both simulation and experimental results are included to demonstrate the accuracy and stability of the algorithm.
