The cell angles, changing from 0° to 360° between any two neighboring code cells, are defined to represent any position on the code disc. If the accuracy of each data is represented as u, the weight w is calculated from a twenty-first formula. A modification of the first to the third embodiments will be described hereinafter. Beam spot shift values from the CAOR using CPM and ICS measurements are closely similar, in the range of 0.05-0.65 mm and 0-0.53 mm respectively. 0000006711 00000 n 0000000567 00000 n In this study arthroscopic terminology was used to describe the position of the femoral tunnel in the notch relative to the flexed knee: shallow or deep and high or low .16, 17 Femoral tunnel position was measured by 3 methods and tibial tunnel position was measured by 1 method. 21 hereinafter. Therefore, the distribution rate of the characteristic points in the vertical direction may be calculated from the total value of the Y coordinates of the characteristic points. In the third embodiment, a weighted bundle adjustment is performed. In this case, each data is weighted and is bundle adjusted, whereby the weights of data having low accuracy are decreased, and the weights of data having high accuracy are increased. In this paper, a novel relative position and orientation (R-P&O) measurement method for large-volume components is proposed. generation, Position data interpolation method, position detecting sensor and position measuring device, SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ORIENTATION AND LOCATION CALIBRATION FOR IMAGE SENSORS, Device and method for position measurement, Three-dimensional image display apparatus and method, <- Previous Patent (Image generating app...). The weights of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are calculated based on at least one selected from the group consisting of the directions and the distances of the tracks of the characteristic points, the distribution rate of the characteristic points, the overlapping rate, and the vertical parallax. For example, underground parking lots and shopping ... As opposed to purely inertial measurements, these methods are somewhat dependent on external factors: for example, a slippery road surface may cause wheelspin. However, by removing the miscorresponding points, the calculation accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are improved, and the errors are decreased. In this case, the accuracy of the posture sensor is represented by a twenty-sixth formula. It is assumed that the difference of the photographing timing of the image and the obtaining timing of the positional data of the GPS or the postural data of the posture sensor is represented as Δt. For the angle rate vx, vy, vz, values obtained from the posture sensor and the IMU are used. Introduction 21A is a flow chart for removing the miscorresponding points by the backward projection, and FIG. 6, the sampled corresponding points (P1, P2) have a point P in the real space, and three-dimensional coordinates of the point P are reprojected on a stereo image shown by the dotted lines according to the coplanar conditional formula (sixth formula) of the relative orientation (step S31). As shown in FIG. One way to determine position is to match the data from the unknown location with a large set of known locations using an algorithm such as k-nearest neighbor. Therefore, the accuracy of the GPS and the posture sensor include an error based on the difference between the photographing timing of the image and the obtaining timing of the positional data of the GPS or the postural data of the posture sensor. First, corresponding points which are tracked are randomly sampled (step S20). (2) Expand the coplanar conditional formula of the seventh formula using Taylor's formula about the approximate values, and make it linear. Then, the steps S20 to S22 are repeated, and the minimum value (LMedS) of the central value is calculated (step S23). Based on the method, the parallel distances between the cooperative point pairs (CPPs) are collected by multiple pairs of wireless ranging sensors which are installed on respective components and finally turned into the R-P&O. 15B, since the characteristic points are distributed on the left side of the image, the total value of the X coordinates comes to negative. FIG. 16B shows an image in which characteristic points overlapping in prior and subsequent frames are not partially distributed. A modification of the first and the second embodiments will be described hereinafter. For example, when c=0.3 and n=3, q=11 in order to obtain P=0.01. 17B. Therefore, by using these parameters for the weights of exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points, the errors of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are decreased. That is, the vertical parallax is a difference of coordinate values in a direction intersecting the baseline direction of the stereo images at a right angle. The accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points calculated from the image have strong tendency to depend on the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit. Femoral Tunnel Measurement: Method A 14,24,32 Therefore, evaluation using 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) images … Privacy Policy On the other hand, the removing of the miscorresponding points by the relative orientation is used when the change of the scene is small because the miscorresponding points are removed based on plural images. For compensation of the effect of air flow, the method requires introducing a further measurement. The change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit may be evaluated based on the value obtained by multiplying more than one or all of the parameters selected from the group consisting of the directions and the distances of the tracks of the characteristic points, the distribution rate of the characteristic points, the overlapping rate, and the vertical parallax. In the case shown in FIG. However, for carrying out this measurement, the same measuring apparatus is used repeatedly, with merely an extra switch of two reciprocal transducers attached, whereby the transducers, in their basic measuring mode, can be single-functioned. The tracking results of the characteristic points include numerous miscorresponding points. EtALL=Et+GPSrtke Twenty-fifth Formula, In the posture sensor, since acceleration may be integrated or be double integrated essentially, error accumulates as time passes. P=1−{1−(1−cn}q Thirty-first Formula. Click for automatic bibliography ), x,y: Image coordinates of the reference points or unknown points, X,Y,Z: Ground coordinates of the reference points or unknown points, (1) Assume initial approximate values of the unknown parameters (κ. The distribution condition (overlapping rate) of the overlapping characteristic points is evaluated by the method for calculating the distribution rate of the characteristic points.

The measurement using CPM and ICS methods can be used for routine quality assurance (QA) to ensure that the beam spot position still in tolerance. In the LMedS method, compared to the least-squares method, even when numerous outliers are included in the data, the outliers are robustly estimated. The accuracy c of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points may be represented by a value obtained by multiplying more than one or all of the parameters selected from the group consisting of the directions and the distances of the tracks of the characteristic points, the distribution rate of the characteristic points, the overlapping rate, and the vertical parallax. are often required. & Terms of Use. In each of the sampled points, a square of a residual value between the image coordinates (x′, y′) obtained by the backward intersection method and the image coordinates (x, y) of the tracked corresponding point is calculated, and a central value of the squares of the residual values is calculated (step S22).
