Abstract

Non-line-of-sight (NLoS) imaging is a newly developed technique with widespread applications in recent years. At present, it is difficult for NLoS imaging to achieve a high-resolution reconstruction with an existing back-projection method. We propose a novel approach based on the Richardson–Lucy deconvolution of time histograms for high-resolution NLoS imaging. In our approach, the backscattering photons from a line-of-sight scene, often regarded as adverse factors, are used favorably as priors for the deconvolution of time histograms. All deconvoluted time histograms are back projected into the space to form a high-resolution NLoS reconstruction. The simulated and experimental results with the approach demonstrated that the reconstructions of NLoS objects are indeed with high resolution, even under a relatively high noise level.
