Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a Temporal Modified-RANSAC based method that can discriminate each moving object from the still background in the stereo video sequences acquired by moving stereo cameras, can compute the stereo cameras' egomotion, and can reconstruct the 3D structure of each moving object and the background. We compute 3D optical flows from the depth map and results of tracking feature points. We define "3D flow region" as a set of connected pixels whose 3D optical flows have a common rotation matrix and translation vector. Our Temporal Modified-RANSAC segments the detected 3D optical flows into 3D flow regions and computes the rotation matrix and translation vector for each 3D flow region. As opposed to the conventional Modified-RANSAC for only two frames, The Temporal Modified- RANSAC can handle temporal images with arbitrary length by performing the Modified-RANSAC to the set of a 3D flow region that classified in the latest frame and new 3D optical flows detected in the current frame iteratively. Finally, the 3D points computed from the depth map in all the frames are registered using each 3D flow region's matrix to the initial positions in the initial frame so that the 3D structures of the moving objects and still background are reconstructed. Experiments using multiple moving objects and real stereo sequences demonstrate promising results of our proposed method.
