CVPR '97

We consider how tracking in stereo may be enhanced by coupling pairs of active contours in different views via affine epipolar geometry and various subsets of planar affine transformations, as well as by implementing temporal constraints imposed by curve rigidity. 3D curve tracking is achieved using a submanifold model, where it is shown how the coupling mechanisms can be decomposed to cater for fixed and variable epipolar geometries. In the case of tracking planar curves, the canonical frame model is developed such that the various geometrical constraints needed in different situations may be efficiently selected. The results show that coupled active contours add consistency and robustness to tracking in stereo.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
