Collinearity and Coplanarity Constraints for Structure from Motion
"... Abstract. Structure from motion (SfM) comprises techniques for estimating 3D structures from uncalibrated 2D image sequences. This work focuses on two contributions: Firstly, a stability analysis is performed and the error propagation of image noise is studied. Secondly, to stabilize SfM, we present ..."

Primitives for the manipulation of general subdivisions and the computations of Voronoi diagrams
 ACM Tmns. Graph
, 1985
"... The following problem is discussed: Given n points in the plane (the sites) and an arbitrary query point 4, find the site that is closest to q. This problem can be solved by constructing the Voronoi diagram of the given sites and then locating the query point in one of its regions. Two algorithms ar ..."

The topology is represented by a new data structure for generalized diagrams, that is, embeddings
A Tutorial on Visual Servo Control
 IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation
, 1996
"... This paper provides a tutorial introduction to visual servo control of robotic manipulators. Since the topic spans many disciplines our goal is limited to providing a basic conceptual framework. We begin by reviewing the prerequisite topics from robotics and computer vision, including a brief review ..."

Closedform solution of absolute orientation using unit quaternions
 J. Opt. Soc. Am. A
, 1987
"... Finding the relationship between two coordinate systems using pairs of measurements of the coordinates of a number of points in both systems is a classic photogrammetric task. It finds applications in stereophotogrammetry and in robotics. I present here a closedform solution to the leastsquares pr ..."

translational offset is the difference between the centroid of the coordinates in one system and the rotated and scaled centroid of the coordinates in the other system. The best scale is equal to the ratio of the rootmeansquare deviations of the coordinates in the two systems from their respective centroids
The Geometry of Multiple Images
, 2001
"... We introduce a methodology for radiometric reconstruction, the simultaneous recovery of multiple illuminants and surface albedoes from multiple views, assuming that the geometry of the scene and of the cameras is known. We formulate the linear theory of multiple illuminants and show its similarities ..."

Determining the Epipolar Geometry and its Uncertainty: A Review
 International Journal of Computer Vision
, 1998
"... Two images of a single scene/object are related by the epipolar geometry, which can be described by a 3×3 singular matrix called the essential matrix if images' internal parameters are known, or the fundamental matrix otherwise. It captures all geometric information contained in two i ..."

Two images of a single scene/object are related by the epipolar geometry, which can be described by a 3×3 singular matrix called the essential matrix if images' internal parameters are known, or the fundamental matrix otherwise. It captures all geometric information contained in two images, and its determination is very important in many applications such as scene modeling and vehicle navigation. This paper gives an introduction to the epipolar geometry, and provides a complete review of the current techniques for estimating the fundamental matrix and its uncertainty. A wellfounded measure is proposed to compare these techniques. Projective reconstruction is also reviewed. The software which we have developed for this review is available on the Internet.
Epipolarplane image analysis: An approach to determining structure from motion
 INTERN..1. COMPUTER VISION
, 1987
"... We present a technique for building a threedimensional description of a static scene from a dense sequence of images. These images are taken in such rapid succession that they form a solid block of data in which the temporal continuity from image to image is approximately equal to the spatial conti ..."

line camera motions, these slices have a simple linear structure that makes them easier to analyze. The analysis computes the threedimensional positions of object features, marks occlusion boundaries on the objects, and builds a threedimensional map of "free space." In our article, we first describe
Constraints on Coplanar Moving Points
"... Abstract. Configurations of dynamic points viewed by one or more cameras have not been studied much. In this paper, we present several view and timeindependent constraints on different configurations of points moving on a plane. We show that 4 points with constant independent velocities or accelera ..."

Under perspective projection, 5 coplanar points under uniform linear velocity observed for 3 time instants in a single view have a viewindependent characterization.
