Spectral Adaptation Transform for Multispectral Constancy

Abstract : The spectral reflectance of an object surface provides valuable information of its characteristics. Reflectance reconstruction from multispectral image data is typically based on certain assumptions. One of the common assumptions is that the same illumination is used for system calibration and image acquisition. The authors propose the concept of multispectral constancy which transforms the captured sensor data into an illuminant-independent representation, analogously to the concept of computational color constancy. They propose to transform the multispectral image data to a canonical representation through spectral adaptation transform (SAT). The performance of such a transform is tested on measured reflectance spectra and hyperspectral reflectance images. The authors also investigate the robustness of the transform to the inaccuracy of illuminant estimation in natural scenes. Results of reflectance reconstruction show that the proposed SAT is efficient and is robust to error in illuminant estimation.
