2D / 3D Pose Estimation
Advisor: Prof. Navab
Supervision by: Martin Groher
By pose we mean the transformation needed to map an object model from its inherent coordinate system into agreement with the sensory data
. In other words, given a world object in the object coordinate system (OCS) and a camera taking an image in the camera coordinate system (CCS) we want to determine a rotation and a translation from OCS to CCS by only using information from model and camera image.
Determining the pose from 2D image and 3D model information is used in many fields of Computer Science, like robotics, Augmented Reality, etc. There are numerous ways to estimate the pose with, e.g. line or point correspondences, or even without any corresponding information given.
This SEP will implement different pose estimation algorithms and test them in a suitable way also against already established code.
Following algorithms shall be implemented:
- 3-point algorithm of Haralick
- 4-point algorithm of Horaud
- Robust Estimation
- Testing against POSIT, SoftPOSIT (already implemented)
A general interest in Computer Vision is advisable, programming language will be C++.
