We present a method to reconstruct the three-dimensional trajectory of a moving instance of a known object category using stereo video data. We track the two-dimensional shape of objects on pixel level exploiting instance-aware semantic segmentation techniques and optical flow cues. We apply Structure from Motion (SfM) techniques to object and background images to determine for each frame initial camera poses relative to object instances and background structures. We refine the initial SfM

In contrast to stereo matching methods, our approach leverages temporal adjacent views for object point triangulation. As opposed to monocular trajectory reconstruction approaches, our method shows no degenerated cases. We evaluate our approach using publicly available video data of vehicles in urban scenes.
