Paper Abstract

This paper deals with new and simple representations of 3-D points in a moving-observer coordinate system. Assuming rectilinear motion with no rotation of an observer where the optical axis coincides with the direction of motion, and a stationary scene, points in 3-D space that lie on a particular 3-D surface produce constant value of some nonlinear function of the measurable image optical flow. Five sets of different surfaces are introduced and there is one optical-flow based constant value for each surface. We called these values `invariants.' It is shown how to extract these invariants and how to use them for representing 3-D space.
