With the techniques shown in “3D in 2D Images – Part III” we have the ability to create the 3D pose of any object represented by a 2D polygon – we can call it PolygonMatch3D based on the very powerful Scorpion Vision Software tool PolygonMatch which locates any occluded polygon with sub-pixel accuracy in 2D
In “3D in 2D Images – Part III” we show that we can locate a circle based on 4-6 user selectable edge-points – see image 1.
The four to six edge points, yellow markers, can be placed on any shaped object represented by a 2D polygon to calculate it’s 3D Pose. In Image 2 the cylinder’s 3D pose is visualised based on the fast and accurate 3D pose estimation methods developed based on Scorpion Vision 9.2.
What can we do?
We can locate the pose of any 2D polygon in 3D.
- We estimate the 3D Pose of a Circle or an ellipse
- We can estimate the 3D Pose of an object located by a Blob
- We can locate of any object that we can represent by a 2D polygon
