Robust estimation of depth and motion using stochastic approximation
The problemof structurefrom motion (SFM)is to extract the three-dimensionalmodel of a moving scene from a sequence of images. Though two images are sufficient to produce a 3D reconstruction, they usually perform poorly because of errors in the estimation of the camera motion, thus motivating the need for multiple frame algorithms. One common approach to this problem is to determine the estimate from pairs of images and then fuse them together. Data fusion techniques, like the Kalman filter, require estimates of the error in modeling and observations. The complexity of the SFM problem makes it difficult to reliably estimate these errors and makes the multi-frame algorithm dependent on the two-frame one. This paper describes a new recursive algorithm to estimate the camera motion and scene structure by fusing the two-frame estimates, using stochastic approximation techniques. The method does not require estimates of the error in the two-frame case, is independent of the underlying two-f...
