5 Structure from motion ambiguity If we scale the entire scene by some factor k and, at the same time, scale the camera matrices by the factor of 1/k, the projections of the scene points in the image remain exactly the same: It is impossible to recover the absolute scale of the scene!

6 Structure from motion ambiguity If we scale the entire scene by some factor k and, at the same time, scale the camera matrices by the factor of 1/k, the projections of the scene points in the image remain exactly the same More generally, if we transform the scene using a transformation Q and apply the inverse transformation to the camera matrices, then the images do not change:

7 Types of ambiguity Projective 15dof Affine 12dof Similarity 7dof Euclidean 6dof Preserves intersection and tangency Preserves parallellism, volume ratios Preserves angles, ratios of length Preserves angles, lengths With no constraints on the camera calibration matrix or on the scene, we get a projective reconstruction Need additional information to upgrade the reconstruction to affine, similarity, or Euclidean

14 Structure from motion Lets start with affine or weak perspective cameras (the math is easier) center at infinity

15 Recall: Orthographic Projection Image World Projection along the z direction

16 Orthographic Projection Parallel Projection Affine cameras

17 A general affine camera combines the effects of an affine transformation of the 3D space, orthographic projection, and an affine transformation of the image: Affine projection is a linear mapping + translation in non-homogeneous coordinates x X a1a1 a2a2 Projection of world origin

18 Affine structure from motion Given: m images of n fixed 3D points: x ij = A i X j + b i, i = 1,…, m, j = 1, …, n Problem: use the mn correspondences x ij to estimate m projection matrices A i and translation vectors b i, and n points X j The reconstruction is defined up to an arbitrary affine transformation Q (12 degrees of freedom): We have 2mn knowns and 8m + 3n unknowns (minus 12 dof for affine ambiguity) Thus, we must have 2mn >= 8m + 3n – 12 For two views, we need four point correspondences

19 Affine structure from motion Centering: subtract the centroid of the image points in each view For simplicity, set the origin of the world coordinate system to the centroid of the 3D points After centering, each normalized 2D point is related to the 3D point X j by

26 Factorizing the measurement matrix Obtaining a factorization from SVD: Source: M. Hebert This decomposition minimizes |D-MS| 2

27 Affine ambiguity The decomposition is not unique. We get the same D by using any 3×3 matrix C and applying the transformations M MC, S C -1 S That is because we have only an affine transformation and we have not enforced any Euclidean constraints (like forcing the image axes to be perpendicular, for example) Source: M. Hebert

28 Transform each projection matrix A to another matrix AC to get orthographic projection Image axes are perpendicular and scale is 1 This translates into 3m equations: (A i C)(A i C) T = A i (CC T )A i = Id, i = 1, …, m Solve for L = CC T Recover C from L by Cholesky decomposition: L = CC T Update M and S: M = MC, S = C -1 S Eliminating the affine ambiguity Source: M.

31 Dealing with missing data So far, we have assumed that all points are visible in all views In reality, the measurement matrix typically looks something like this: cameras points

32 Dealing with missing data Possible solution: decompose matrix into dense sub- blocks, factorize each sub-block, and fuse the results Finding dense maximal sub-blocks of the matrix is NP- complete (equivalent to finding maximal cliques in a graph) Incremental bilinear refinement (1)Perform factorization on a dense sub-block (2) Solve for a new 3D point visible by at least two known cameras (linear least squares) (3) Solve for a new camera that sees at least three known 3D points (linear least squares) F.

33 Projective structure from motion Given: m images of n fixed 3D points λ ij x ij = P i X j, i = 1,…, m, j = 1, …, n Problem: estimate m projection matrices P i and n 3D points X j from the mn correspondences x ij x1jx1j x2jx2j x3jx3j XjXj P1P1 P2P2 P3P3

34 Projective structure from motion Given: m images of n fixed 3D points λ ij x ij = P i X j, i = 1,…, m, j = 1, …, n Problem: estimate m projection matrices P i and n 3D points X j from the mn correspondences x ij With no calibration info, cameras and points can only be recovered up to a 4x4 projective transformation Q: X QX, P PQ -1 We can solve for structure and motion when 2mn >= 11m +3n – 15 For two cameras, at least 7 points are needed

35 Projective SFM: Two-camera case Compute fundamental matrix F between the two views First camera matrix: [I | 0] Second camera matrix: [A | b] Then b is the epipole ( F T b = 0 ), A = –[b × ]F F&P sec. 8.3.2

40 Self-calibration Self-calibration (auto-calibration) is the process of determining intrinsic camera parameters directly from uncalibrated images For example, when the images are acquired by a single moving camera, we can use the constraint that the intrinsic parameter matrix remains fixed for all the images Compute initial projective reconstruction and find 3D projective transformation matrix Q such that all camera matrices are in the form P i = K [R i | t i ] Can use constraints on the form of the calibration matrix: zero skew Can use vanishing points
