Object motion and camera pose estimation

Automatic Camera Localization

Estimation of camera location via analysis of observed trajectories and geographic maps. 

Where, in this town...                                                                                                


... is this camera placed? Is it possible to estimate it?           

- NO GPS readimng available

- Static visual cues are not practical!! 



- Observe the moving objects in the scene.

- Model the expected trajectories for objects from a map of the passable regions of the scene.

- Apply Bayesian estimation to determine:

1. Whether there are multiple placements compatible with the observations performanced by the camera.

2. The location of the camera in the town (map).
