Recognizing 3D Ojbects of 2D Images: An Error Analysis
Many object recognition systems use a small number of pairings of data and model features to compute the 3D transformation from a model coordinate frame into the sensor coordinate system. With perfect image data, these systems work well. With uncertain image data, however, their performance is less clear. We examine the effects of 2D sensor uncertainty on the computation of 3D model transformations. We use this analysis to bound the uncertainty in the transformation parameters, and the uncertainty associated with transforming other model features into the image. We also examine the impact of the such transformation uncertainty on recognition methods.
