Evidence Suggesting that 'Oumuamua is the 30 Myr-old product of a Molecular Cloud [article]

Cheng-Han Hsieh, Gregory Laughlin, Hector G. Arce
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We obtain an a-priori order-of-magnitude age estimate for 'Oumuamua by comparing its orbit to the orbits of 50,899 F-type stars drawn from Gaia DR2; a diffusion model then suggests a ∼ 35 Myr dynamical  ...  We conduct Monte Carlo simulations that trace the orbits of test particles ejected from the stars in the Carina association.  ...  The small z max difference between the low-mass sample and the high-mass sample indicates z max is not strongly sensitive to residence times ranging from 2 Gyr to 10 Gyr (the approximate age of the galactic  ...

Feature and Viewpoint Selection for Industrial Car Assembly [chapter]

Dirk Stößel, Marc Hanheide, Gerhard Sagerer, Lars Krüger, Marc Ellenrieder
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since high throughput must be achieved, object recognition and pose estimation heavily rely on offline preprocessing stages of available CAD data.  ...  In this paper, we propose a complete, universal framework for CAD model feature extraction and entropy index based viewpoint selection that is developed in cooperation with a major german car manufacturer  ...  Thus, model-based pose estimation meets the strong accuracy requirements of car industry.  ...

Negotiating uncertainty: asteroids, risk and the media

Felicity Mellor
2008 Public Understanding of Science  
This paper examines the way in which a small group of astronomers and planetary scientists have constructed asteroids as risky objects and have attempted to control the media representation of the issue  ...  Natural scientists often appear in the news media as key actors in the management of risk.  ...  Estimates of the average time intervals between impacts are also uncertain, being derived from estimates of the total population of each class of asteroid which are in turn deduced from the lunar cratering  ...

Without additional prior information, the pose of a camera estimated with computer vision techniques is expressed in a local coordinate frame attached to the camera's initial location.  ...  By combining exterior orientation from a known target with incremental pose changes inferred from accurate multi-GNSS positioning, the full 6 DoF pose of the camera is updated with low processing overhead  ...  The camera pose at a certain location (cf. eq. (1)) is obtained via pose estimation from a number of ground control points (GCPs).  ...
