A versatile high-performance visual fiducial marker detection system with scalable identity encoding

Peter Lightbody, Tomáš Krajník, Marc Hanheide
2017 Proceedings of the Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '17  
A key concept of our system is the separation of the detection and identification steps, where the first step is based on a computationally efficient circular marker detection, and the identification step  ...  is based on an open-ended 'Necklace code', which allows for a theoretically infinite number of individually identifiable markers.  ...  With our extension of the original system we now present a 6-DoF fiducial marker system.  ...
