Structure from motion refers to a technique to obtain 3D information from consecutive images taken with a moving monocular camera. In order to do this, the camera motion performed between two consecutive images needs to be known. In the work reported in this contribution, we investigated the precision of the odometry data of a commercially available(More)
This paper names several risks with iterative optimization of vehicle trajectories modeled through the calculus of variations, as used recently in several approaches to automated driving, and demonstrates how these can be addressed by global optimization, while retaining the original, variational optimization goals. A method for transforming variational(More)
Face recognition under surveillance circumstances still poses a significant problem due to low data quality. Nevertheless, automatic analysis is highly desired for criminal investigations due to the growing amount of security cameras worldwide. We suggest a face recognition system addressing the typical issues such as motion blur, noise or compression(More)
This paper establishes a duality between the calculus of variations, an increasingly common method for trajectory planning, and Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), a common probabilistic graphical model with applications in artificial intelligence and machine learning. This duality allows findings from each field to be applied to the other, namely providing an(More)
