Summary:
This thesis is concerned with the estimation of motion parameters of planar-object surfaces viewed with a binocular camera configuration. Possible application of this method includes autonomous guidance of a moving platform (AGVS) via imaging, and segmentation of moving objects by the use of the information concerning the motion and the structure. The brightness constraint equation is obtained by assuming the brightness of a moving patch as almost invariant. This equation is solved for single camera case as well as binocular camera case by knowing values of the surface normal or by iteratively determining it using the estimates of motion parameters. For this value of the surface normal, rotational and translational motion components are determined over the entire image using a least squares algorithm. This algorithm is tested for simulated images as well as real images pertaining to a single camera as well as binocular camera situations. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
