Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new approach to detect a three-dimensional (3-D) object and to estimate its position and orientation. The proposed system can estimate the object's 3-D pose from a single input image by using 3-D model with feature points. The 3-D model is employed in order to represent 3-D object, and the system can create 2-D models projected from various viewpoints. Then, the system compares each 2-D model with the input image and calculates the matching rate, taking notice of some partial features of the object. This object recognition can be regarded as an optimization, problem: a maximum search problem of the model's matching rate. In the proposed system, a genetic algorithm (GA) is employed for this optimization. In the computer experiments, we took up a car as an example of the object. We have tested various kinds of images and obtained excellent results.
