STRUCTURE FROM MOTION OF LONG VIDEO SEQUENCES

Siyuan Fang, Neill Campbell

Abstract

In this paper we introduce an approach for ``Structure from Motion'' from long video sequence. Our approach starts from an initialization of first several frames and adopts an incremental strategy to allow more frames to be added into the SFM system. The main contribution lies in that we introduce an update propagation to modify the entire SFM system to accommodate changes brought by the local bundle adjustment applied to newly added frames. With this step, our approach gains a significant accuracy improvement at a cost of relatively small extra computation overhead.
