Next: Relating images Up: Camera model and multiple Previous: Multi view geometry   Contents


In this chapter some important concepts were introduced. A geometric description of the image formation process was given and the camera projection matrix was introduced. Some important relationships between multiple views were also derived. The insights obtained by carefully studying these properties have shown that it is possible to retrieve a relative calibration of a two view camera setup from point matches only. This is an important result which will be exploited further on to obtain a 3D reconstruction starting from the images.
