Multibody Structure and Motion: 3-D Reconstruction of Independently Moving Objects
Abstract. This paper extends the recovery of structure and motion to image sequences with several independently moving objects. The motion, structure, and camera calibration are all a-priori unknown. The fundamental constraint that we introduce is that multiple motions must share the same camera parameters. Existing work on independent motions has not employed this constraint, and therefore has not gained over independent static-scene reconstructions. We show how this constraint leads to several new results in structure and motion recovery, where Euclidean reconstruction becomes possible in the multibody case, when it was underconstrained for a static scene. We show how to combine motions of high-relief, low-relief and planar objects. Additionally we show that structure and motion can be recovered from just 4 points in the uncalibrated, fixed camera, case. Experiments on real and synthetic imagery demonstrate the validity of the theory and the improvement in accuracy obtained using mul...
