Fast Iterative Five point Relative Pose Estimation
2013 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Robust estimation of the relative pose between two cameras is a fundamental part of Structure and Motion methods. For calibrated cameras, the five point method together with a robust estimator such as RANSAC gives the best result in most cases. The current state-of-the-art method for solving the relative pose problem from five points is due to Nistér , because it is faster than other methods and in the RANSAC scheme one can improve precision by increasing the number of iterations. In this paper, we propose a new iterative method, which is based on Powell's Dog Leg algorithm. The new method has the same precision and is approximately twice as fast as Nister's algorithm. The proposed method is easily extended to more than five points while retaining a efficient error metrics. This makes it also very suitable as an refinement step. The proposed algorithm is systematically evaluated on three types of datasets with known ground truth.
