Abstract

A two-step method for pose estimation based on five co-planar reference points is studied. In the first step, the pose of the object is estimated by a simple analytical solving process. The pixel coordinates of reference points on the image plane are extracted through image processing. Then, using affine invariants of the reference points with certain distances between each other, the coordinates of reference points in the camera coordinate system are solved. In the second step, the results obtained in the first step are used as initial values of an iterative solving process for gathering the exact solution. In such a solution, an unconstrained nonlinear optimization objective function is established through the objective functions produced by the depth estimation and the co-planarity of the five reference points to ensure the accuracy and convergence rate of the non-linear algorithm. The Levenberg-Marquardt optimization method is utilized to refine the initial values. The coordinates of the reference points in the camera coordinate system are obtained and transformed into the pose of the object. Experimental results show that the RMS of the azimuth angle reaches 0.076° in the measurement range of 0o-90o; the root mean square (RMS) of the pitch angle reaches 0.035o in the measurement range of 0°-60°; and the RMS of the roll angle reaches 0.036° in the measurement range of 0°-60°.
