When a planar structure is observed from multiple views, the projections of its corresponding 3D points on each image are related by a homography.

We propose an optimization technique to simultaneously recover a transitively consistent network of planar homographies between multiple views together with a segmentation of the pixels comprising the observed plane (Fig. 1). Our method acts on a per-pixel basis to avoid a preliminary multi-view sparse feature matching step. Similarly to bundle adjustment, the error is diffused so that each homography in the view graph is transitively consistent with the others.

Abstract

When a planar structure is observed from multiple views, the projections of its corresponding 3D points on each image are related by a homography. Its estimation is a key step in many computer vision tasks where either the rigid motion between views or a per-pixel image correspondence is sought. The vast majority of multi-view homography estimation techniques relies on matching a sparse set of point-to-point correspondences to establish a connected graph in the camera network. This track creation step is critical to ensure that the following bundle adjustment can estimate a globally optimal alignment in which the error is diffused coherently on each pairwise homography. On the other hand, erroneous or short tracks often cause misalignments among the views. We propose an optimization technique to simultaneously recover a transitively consistent network of planar homographies between multiple views together with a segmentation of the pixels comprising the observed plane (Fig. 1). Our method acts on a per-pixel basis to avoid a preliminary multi-view sparse feature matching step. Similarly to bundle adjustment, the error is diffused so that each homography in the view graph is transitively consistent with the others. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is evaluated in real-world scenarios and synthetically generated scenes.
