Puzzle Approach to Pose Tracking of a Rigid Object in a Multi Camera System
Optical tracking is a large field of research with countless sophisticated methods for a multitude of applications. However, there always exist tasks with special requirements and constraints that are not covered by traditional methods. This work presents a puzzle-based approach to tackle the problem of tracking all 6 degrees of freedom of a rigid object with few trackable features using a multi camera system. The presented algorithm capitalizes on non-sequential processing to assemble tracking information bit by bit. Validation shows that it achieves very high accuracy on real data.
