Abstract

An algorithm for the real-time estimation of the position and orientation of a moving object of known geometry is presented in this paper. An estimation algorithm is adopted where a discrete-time extended Kalman filter computes the object pose on the basis of visual measurements of the object features. The scheme takes advantage of the prediction capability of the extended Kalman filter for the pre-selection of the features to be extracted from the image at each sample time. To enhance the robustness of the algorithm with respect to measurement noise and modelling error, an adaptive version of the extended Kalman filter, customized for visual applications, is proposed. Experimental results on a fixed single-camera visual system are presented to test the performance and the feasibility of the proposed approach.
