In this paper we describe a method that estimates the motion of a calibrated camera (settled on an experimental vehicle) and the tridimensional geometry of the environment. The only data used is a video input. In fact, interest points are tracked and matched between frames at video rate. Robust estimates of the camera motion are computed in real-time,(More)
We address the problem of deformable shape and motion recovery from point correspondences in multiple perspective images. We use the low-rank shape model, i.e. the 3D shape is represented as a linear combination of unknown shape bases. We propose a new way of looking at the low-rank shape model. Instead of considering it as a whole, we assume a(More)
This paper describes a method for estimating the motion of a calibrated camera and the three dimensional geometry of the filmed environment. The only data used is video input. Interest points are tracked and matched between frames at video rate. Robust estimates of the camera motion are computed in real-time, key frames are selected to enable 3D(More)
This paper describes a new vision based method for the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping of mobile robots. The only data used is a video input from a moving calibrated monocular camera. From the detection and matching of interest points in images at video rate, robust estimates of the camera poses are computed in real-time and a 3D map of the(More)
A complete tool chain starting with stereo photogrammetry based digitization of artefacts, their refinement, collection and management with other multimedia data, and visualization using virtual and augmented reality is presented. Our system provides a one-stop-solution for museums to create, manage and present both content and context for virtual(More)
We describe an innovative system designed for museums to create, manage and present multimedia based representations of museum artefacts in virtual exhibitions both inside and outside museums. Our system creates digital surrogates through a novel stereo photogrammetry system with little user interaction. The resulting 3D objects are refined using(More)
This paper introduces an incremental method for "structure from motion" of complex scenes from a video sequence. More precisely, we estimate the 3D positions of the viewed points in images and the camera positions and orientations through the sequence. The method can be seen as a fast but accurate alternative to classical reconstruction methods that use(More)
We introduce a generic and incremental Structure fromMotion method. By generic, we mean that the proposed method is independent of any specific camera model. During the incremental 3D reconstruction, parameters of 3D points and camera poses are refined simultaneously by a generic local bundle adjustment that minimizes an angular error between rays.

This paper presents an audio-video surveillance system for the automatic surveillance in public transport vehicle. The system comprises six modules including in particular three novel ones: (i) Face Detection and Tracking, (ii) Audio Event Detection and (iii) Audio-Video Scenario Recognition. The Face Detection and Tracking module is responsible for(More)
