Abstract: This paper tackles the problem of novel view synthesis (NVS) from 360° images with imperfect camera poses or intrinsic parameters. We propose a novel end-to-end framework for training Neural Radiance Field (NeRF) models given only 360° RGB images and their rough poses, which we refer to as Omni-NeRF. We extend the pinhole camera model of NeRF to a more general camera model that better fits omni-directional fish-eye lenses.
The approach jointly learns the scene geometry and optimizes the camera parameters without knowing the fisheye projection.
