Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of an object, where the Euclidean coordinates of feature points on a moving or fixed object are recovered from a sequence of two- dimensional (2D) images is known as Euclidean position estimation or more broadly known as Structure from Motion (SFM) or Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). They have significant impact on several applications such as: A 3D Euclidean position estimator using a single moving calibrated camera whose position is assumed to be measurable is developed in this paper to asymptotically recover the structure of a static object. To estimate the structure, an adaptive least squares estimation strategy is employed based on a novel prediction error formulation and a Lyapunov stability analysis.
