A SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATIC POSE-ESTIMATION FROM A SINGLE IMAGE IN A CITY SCENE

Björn Johannson and Roberto Cipolla

2002

We describe an automatic system for pose-estimation from a single image in a city scene. Each building has a model consisting of a number of parallel planes associated with it. The homographies for the best match of the planes to the image is estimated automatically for each of the possible buildings. We show how the estimation of homographies can be done effectively by reducing the search space and using fast convolution. The model having the best match is then used to determine the position and orientation of the camera.

The results of a number of experiments of the system in realistic circumstances is also presented.

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.
