Estimation of 3D-motion and structure from tracking 2D-lines in a sequence of images

  • T. Vieville
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 427)


We establish the motion equations for rigidly moving 3D lines, and the structure equations that relate a temporal match of 2D lines in three consecutive pictures in an image sequence. We also analyse in details the numerical stability of such estimations.
