Finding the relationship between two coordinate systems using pairs of measurements of the coordinates of a number of points in both systems is a classic photogrammetric task. It finds applications in stereophotogrammetry and in robotics. We present here a closed-form solution to the least-squares problem for three or more points. Currently , various(More)
—Optical flow has been commonly defined as the apparent motion of image brightness patterns in an image sequence. In this paper, we propose a revised definition to overcome shortcomings in interpreting optical flow merely as a geometric transformation field. The new definition is a complete representation of geometric and radiometric variations in dynamic(More)
In this correspondence, we show how to recover the motion of an observer relative to a planar surface from image brightness derivatives. We do not compute the optical flow as an intermediate step, only the spatial and temporal brightness gradients (at a minimum of eight points). We first present two iterative schemes for solving nine nonlinear equations in(More)
We address the problem of recovering the motion of a monocular observer relative to a rigid scene. We do not make any assumptions about the shapes of the surfaces in the scene, nor do we use estimates of the optical flow or point correspondences. Instead, we exploit the spatial gradient and the time rate of change of brightness over the whole image and(More)
This paper presents a novel approach for combining a set of registered images into a composite mosaic with no visible seams and minimal texture distortion. To promote execution speed in building large area mosaics, the mosaic space is divided into disjoint regions of image intersection based on a geometric criterion. Pair-wise image blending is performed(More)
Utilization of an acoustic camera for range measurements is a key advantage for 3-D shape recovery of underwater targets by opti-acoustic stereo imaging, where the associated epipolar geometry of optical and acoustic image correspondences can be described in terms of conic sections. In this paper, we propose methods for system calibration and 3-D scene(More)
