A fiducial marker provides information about the position of the occluding object and the plane of the surface on which shadows are cast, and serves as the origin of a marker coordinate system. A new shadow segmentation approach is carried out on the shadow image and is able to recover geometrical information on multiple faint shadows. Using normalised iterative reinforcement, noise and artifacts can be suppressed in the final shadow map. The scene's light source distribution is then extrapolated using geometrical data from both the occluding object and its cast shadows. Virtual light sources in a game engine are used to mimic real light sources and achieve consistent illumination and increase the realism of the augmented reality scene. ©2009 IEEE.||Source Title:||Science and Technology Proceedings - IEEE 2009 International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, ISMAR 2009||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/83578||ISBN:||9781424453900||DOI:||10.1109/ISMAR.2009.5336453|
