REAL-TIME TRACKING OF COMPLEX STRUCTURES WITH ON-LINE CAMERA CALIBRATION
T. Drummond and R. Cipolla
This paper presents a novel three-dimensional model-based tracking system which has been incorporated into a visual servoing system. The tracking system combines modern graphical rendering technology with constrained active contour tracking techniques to create wire-frame-snakes. It operates in real time at video frame rate (25 Hz) and is based on an internal CAD model of the object to be tracked. This model is rendered using a binary space partition tree to perform hidden line removal and the visible features are identified on-line at each frame and are tracked in the video feed. The tracking system has been extended to incorporate real-time on-line calibration and tracking of internal camera parameters. Results from on-line calibration and visual servoing experiments are presented.

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.
