3-D Surface and Motion From Stereo Images

The contributions include a closed-form approximate matrix-weighted solution for motion and structure from consecutive stereo image pairs, which is better than existing solutions based on feature points with typical stereo setups; and a recursive-batch technique for dealing with long stereo image sequences, which takes advantage of two very different schemes: Kalman filtering and batch processing.
