Camera Pose Estimation from Sequence of Calibrated Images

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 184)


In this paper a method for camera pose estimation from a sequence of images is presented. The method assumes camera is calibrated (intrinsic parameters are known) which allows to decrease a number of required pairs of corresponding points compared to uncalibrated case. Our algorithm can be used as a first stage in a structure from motion stereo reconstruction system.
