Paper Abstract

In many object recognition problems, the object to be identified is one of a fixed set (library) of objects. The problem of identifying which object is present then shares characteristics of the signal detection and parameter estimation problem: which signal is present and what are its parameters? The Reciprocal Basis Set/Direction of Arrival (RBS/DOA) technique is a recently developed technique for object pose determination. It uses a single, comprehensive analytic object model representing a suite of views of an object. Object orientation can be directly established from single 2-D views of the object, without a costly search of the pose parameter space, and without need for the views to be related by a geometric image transformation. This paper describes how one can construct reciprocal basis sets to simultaneously determine object identity and pose from a single 2-D image. Results are presented which demonstrate this ability for a single unknown pose parameter using synthetic and camera-acquired images.
