We present a novel algorithm for unsupervised subcategorization of an object class, in the context of object detection. Dividing the detection problem into smaller subproblems simplifies the object vs. background classification. © 2011 IEEE.

The ongoing technical improvements in photogrammetry, Geomatics, computer vision (CV), and robotics offer new possibilities for many applications requiring efficient acquisition of three-dimensional data. Image orientation is one of these important techniques in many applications like mapping, precise measurements, 3D modeling and navigation. Image orientation comprises three main techniques of resection, intersection (triangulation) and relative orientation, which are conventionally solved by collinearity equations or by using projection and fundamental matrices. However, different problems still exist in the state - of -the -art of image orientation because of the nonlinearity and the sensitivity to proper initialization and spatial distribution of the points. In this research, a modified method is presented to solve the triangulation problem using inclined angles derived from the measured image coordinates and based on spherical trigonometry rules and vector geometry. The developed procedure shows promising results compared to collinearity approach and to converge to the global minimum even when starting from far approximations. This is based on the strong geometric constraint offered by the inclined angles that are enclosed between the object points and the camera stations. Numerical evaluations with perspective and panoramic images are presented and compared with the conventional solution of collinearity equations. The results show the efficiency of the developed model and the convergence of the solution to global minimum even with improper starting values.

The present invention relates to a method for generating a panoramic image. The method includes the steps of providing a 3D point model of an area surrounding a virtual viewpoint, acquiring multiple images of the area surrounding the virtual viewpoint, projecting the acquired images onto the 3D point model and generating the panoramic image using the thus obtained 3D point model of the surrounding area.


The present invention relates to an apparatus and method for detecting and recognizing an object in an image, the method comprising a plurality of stages, wherein at least one of the stages comprises an integrated approach of feature detection and object recognition of at least a part of the object. In a further embodiment at least one of the stages comprises identifying an image part that contains a feature point, and matching the image part to a set of hierarchies of templates, wherein a hierarchy comprises templates for an object to recognized, a template describes at least a part of an object to be recognized, and a child template describes a sub-part of the part of the object described by its parent template.

The present invention relates to a system, a device, and vehicle for recording panoramic images. According to the present invention, panoramic images can be obtained using a plurality of optical cameras and light directing elements which are arranged based on a parabola. This allows a compact device to be obtained while ensuring that each camera records a partial image as if it were at substantially the same focus point as the other cameras. By arranging the plurality of cameras and light directing elements such that the respective focus points are slightly offset relative to each other, a slight overlap between adjacent field of views can be obtained to improve stitching of the partial images to from the panoramic image.
