Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new scheme for sensor data fusion in machine vision. The proposed scheme uses Kalman filter as the sensor data integration tool and hierarchical B- spline surface as the recording data structure. Kalman filter is used to obtain statistically optimal estimations of the imaged surface structure based on external sensor measurements. Hierarchical B-spline surface maintains high-order surface derivative continuity, may be adaptively refined, possesses desirable local control property, and is storage efficient. Hence, it is used to record the reconstructed surface structure.
