Paper Abstract

The relational pyramid representation is a hierarchical relational description of an object that can be used in recognition and pose estimation. In this representation, primitive features appear at the bottom of the pyramid, relations among primitives appear at level one, and, in general, relations among lower-level structures appear at the levels above the levels in which these structures were defined. We have constructed a pose estimation system that uses the relational pyramid representation for the view classes of a three-dimensional object and for the description of the unknown view of an object extracted from an image. A previously described system uses summary information to rank and select view classes to which the unknown view is compared. This paper describes a best-first search procedure to find correspondences between the selected view class pyramid and the image pyramid.
