A. Cherian, V. Morellas, N. Papanikolopoulos
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
The ground plane from the given image is accurately estimated and this precedes segmentation of the image into ground and vertical regions.  ...  In this work, we propose algorithms to accurately estimate the 3D location of the landmarks from the robot only from a single image taken from its on board camera.  ...  GROUND PLANE ESTIMATION A. 3D depth map construction Humans seldom have any difficulty in inferring the 3D structure of the scene from a single image.  ...

Cast Shadow Resistant Ground Plane Detection in Single Image

Xiaoyan Xu, Xiaoming Liu, Chang Liu, Yuan Ling
2017 International Journal of Hybrid Information Technology  
In this paper, we present a cast shadow resistant ground plane detection approach from a single color image. We first derive an initial ground plane using geometric layout method.  ...  The final shadow resistant ground plane result is obtained by employing region growth on the initial seed region in the shadow-free intrinsic image.  ...  In [2] , a purely vision-based method using a single on-board camera is proposed to estimate the ground plane.  ...

2019 arXiv   pre-print
We focus on estimating the 3D orientation of the ground plane from a single image.  ...  We formulate the problem as an inter-mingled multi-task prediction problem by jointly optimizing for pixel-wise surface normal direction, ground plane segmentation, and depth estimates.  ...  When only a single image is available, parallel lines detected on the ground plane can be used to estimate vanishing points and the horizon line [15] .  ...

2015 IET Computer Vision  
It segments the image into separate plane regions, estimating the relative depth and altitude for each image pixel, building a 3D reconstruction of the scene.  ...  This paper proposes a novel method to learn the geometry of a scene containing more than a single ground plane by tracking pedestrians and combining information from multiple views.  ...  Compared with methods that assume a single ground plane model, if we took the flat ground area (not considering the stairs and overpass separately) as the "single ground plane", the homography mapping  ...

2012 Proceedings of the 27th Conference on Image and Vision Computing New Zealand - IVCNZ '12  
Traditional methods for estimating ground plane are restricted to a scene with single ground plane.  ...  With single image, the authors in [9, 3, 4] understand 3D scene by extracting vanishing points from edges and corners in the image.  ...

Airborne Optical Sectioning

2018 Journal of Imaging  
Shifting focus computationally towards the ground allows optical slicing through dense occluder structures (such as leaves, tree branches, and coniferous trees), and discovery and inspection of concealed  ...  AOS samples the optical signal of wide synthetic apertures (30–100 m diameter) with unstructured video images recorded from a low-cost camera drone to support optical sectioning by image integration.  ...  Furthermore, the fact that recorded images spatially overlap in the focal plane suggests that the actual spatial sampling resolution is higher than for a single image (as estimated in Appendix A).  ...

UAV altitude estimation by mixed stereoscopic vision

D Eynard, P Vasseur, C Demonceaux, V Frémont
2010 2010 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
Contrary to classical stereoscopic systems based on feature matching, we propose a plane sweeping approach in order to estimate the altitude and consequently to detect the ground plane.  ...  We show that this approach is robust and accurate, and a CPU implementation allows a real time estimation.  ...  For an image composed of a dominant ground plane and walls, ground plane is segmented as inliers while walls are segmented as outliers.  ...
