WWW Link. Relaxation. The input is two sets of points, each corresponding to feature locations in different views of the scene. Like Kahl( See also Some Experiments in Point Pattern Matching. ), the system finds a global displacement (translation) that best fits the data, but works better with small rotation and scale changes. Points are matched with all points in the other image with the match rating based on how many other point matches agree with the transform computed from that match. The scores are computed (and updated) based on the scores of the other point pairs to produce a highly rated consensus transform for the set of points. BibRef 8000

Earlier: UMD-CS TR-1-71. Relaxation. A relaxation procedure is used to find matches between pairs of images that differ in position and orientation. The matching is performed on sets of feature points (corners), which have position, orientation, contrast, and sharpness. After several iterations, good matches are clustered which gives sets of transformations (translation and rotation). The best transformation can be selected from these likely ones. This extends an earlier method See also Point Pattern Matching by Relaxation. BibRef
