Correspondence and Affine Shape from Two Orthographic Views: Motion and Recognition

Unknown author (1991-12-01)

The paper presents a simple model for recovering affine shape and correspondence from two orthographic views of a 3D object. It is shown that four corresponding points along two orthographic views, taken under similar illumination conditions, determine affine shape and correspondence for all other points. The scheme is useful for purposes of visual recognition by generating novel views of an object given two model views. It is also shown that the scheme can handle objects with smooth boundaries, to a good approximation, without introducing any modifications or additional model views.
