Measuring camera translation by the dominant apical angle

Akihiko Torii, Michal Havlena, Tomas Pajdla, Bastian Leibe
2008 2008 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition  
Simulated experiments show that the dominant apical angle is a linear function of the length of the true camera translation.  ...  We demonstrate that the amount of the translation can be reliably measured for general as well as planar scenes by the most frequent apical angle, the angle under which the camera centers are seen from  ...  Acknowledgment This work has been supported by grants EU FP6-IST-027787 DIRAC, MSM6840770038 DMCM III, STINT Dur IG2003-2 062 and MSMT KONTAKT 9-06-17.  ...

A Unified Model of Shoot Tropism in Plants: Photo-, Gravi- and Propio-ception

Renaud Bastien, Stéphane Douady, Bruno Moulia, Mark S Alber
2015 PLoS Computational Biology  
This angle is determined by a combination of the two directional stimuli, gravity and light, weighted by the ratio between the gravi-and photo-sensitivities of the plant organ.  ...  The interaction between gravitropism and phototropism results in an alignment of the apical part of the organ toward a photogravitropic setpoint angle.  ...  The English was edited by Karen Marron.  ...

2013 Translational Vision Science & Technology  
The effect is illustrated photographically by holding a prism in front of a camera lens (Fig. 1B) .  ...  Note that the measured apical scotoma does not appear as large as the calculated scotoma, likely due to a combination of measurement error, vignetting, and slight misalignment of the prism apices between  ...

Jumping mechanisms and performance of pygmy mole crickets (Orthoptera, Tridactylidae)

M. Burrows, M. D. Picker
2010 Journal of Experimental Biology  
The hind legs are dominated by enormous femora containing the jumping muscles and are 131% longer than the body. The ratio of leg lengths is: 1:2.1:4.5 (front:middle:hind, respectively).  ...  The take-off angle is steep and once airborne the body rotates backwards about its transverse axis (pitch) at rates of 100Hz or higher.  ...  M.B. is also very grateful for the hospitality and support of the Zoology Department at the University of Cape Town.  ...

Active Gaze Control Improves Optic Flow-Based Segmentation and Steering

Florian Raudies, Ennio Mingolla, Heiko Neumann, Markus Lappe
2012 PLoS ONE  
We suggest that this difference in gaze might be motivated by specific patterns of optic flow that are generated by either fixating the center or edge of an object.  ...  We conclude that gaze control incorporates ecological constraints to improve the robustness of steering and collision avoidance by actively generating flows appropriate to solve the task.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors appreciate the time and effort of two anonymous reviewers and their helpful comments.  ...
