Paper Abstract

In a previous paper, the authors described a real time approach for tracking of parametric objects. The system proposed used coordinate trees that enabled the accurate and efficient calculation of the projection calculus in real time. Frame to frame coherence constraints were provided for by ensuring incremental movements between scenes, that is, the change in the perceived view of projected object boundaries from one instance of motion to another. This requirement can be directly translated into geometric constraints that can be enforced in parallel. This paper provides necessary implementation details for the parallel aspects of the algorithm and further extends the algorithm to apply to the cases of a moving viewer.
