This paper describes a highly flexible approach to real-time frame-rate tracking in complex camera and structures configurations, including the use of multiple cameras and the tracking of multiple or articulated targets. A powerful and general method is presented for expressing and solving the constraints which exist in these configurations in a principled manner. This method exploits the geometric structure present in the Lie group and Lie algebra formalism to express the constraints that derive from structures such as hinges or a common ground plane. This method makes use of the adjoint representation to simplify the constraints which are then applied by means of Lagrange multipliers.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
