Generic imaging models can be used to represent any camera. Current generic models are discrete and define a mapping between each pixel in the image and a straight line in 3D space. This paper presents a modification of the generic camera model that allows the simplification of the calibration procedure. The only requirement is that the coordinates of the(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of pose estimation under the framework of generalized camera models. We propose a solution based on the knowledge of the coordinates of 3-D straight lines (expressed in the world coordinate frame) and their corresponding image pixels. Previous approaches used the knowledge of the coordinates of 3-D points (zero(More)
— A real-time Deep Learning based method for Pedestrian Detection (PD) is applied to the Human-Aware robot navigation problem. The pedestrian detector combines the Aggregate Channel Features (ACF) detector with a deep Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) in order to obtain fast and accurate performance. Our solution is firstly evaluated using a set of real(More)
Pose estimation is a relevant problem for imaging systems whose applications range from augmented reality to robotics. In this paper we propose a novel solution for the minimal pose problem, within the framework of generalized camera models and using a planar homography. Within this framework and considering only the geometric elements of the generalized(More)
A given six dimensional vector represents a 3D straight line in Plücker coordinates if its coordinates satisfy the Klein quadric constraint. In many problems aiming to find the Plücker coordinates of lines, noise in the data and other type of errors contribute for obtaining 6D vectors that do not correspond to lines, because of that constraint. A common(More)
