Paper Abstract

In this paper we introduce the notion of a focused filter and discuss its application to the problem of pose estimation. A focused filter is a correlation filter designed to give a maximum response at one pose of the target. This pose is called the focus of the filter. As the actual pose of the target deviates from the focus, the filter's response should exhibit a graceful (and controlled) degradation. When presented with a test image, the responses of all focused filters are collected in a vector. This new vector will have a peak with the vector elements exhibiting the same shape as that used in designing one focused filter. This similarity is exploited for pose estimation by matching the filter responses to the designed shape. Simulation experiments are used to illustrate the potential of the new design method.
