SFM FOR PLANAR SCENES: A DIRECT AND ROBUST APPROACH

Fadi Dornaika, Angel D. Sappa

Abstract

Traditionally, the Structure From Motion (SFM) problem has been solved using feature correspondences. This approach requires reliably detected and tracked features between images taken from widespread locations. In this paper, we present a new paradigm to the SFM problem for planar scenes. The novelty of the paradigm lies in the fact that instead of image feature correspondences, only image derivatives are used. We introduce two approaches. The first approach estimates the SFM parameters in two steps. The second approach directly estimates the parameters in one single step. Moreover, for both strategies we introduce the use of robust statistics in order to get robust solutions in presence of outliers. Experiments on both synthetic and real image sequences demonstrated the effectiveness of the developed methods.
