The vertical parallax is a difference of y-coordinates of corresponding points in two images that are stereographed, that is, a difference of coordinate values in a direction intersecting a baseline direction of the stereo images at a right angle. If the accuracy of each data is represented as u, the weight w is calculated from a twenty-first formula. The standard of the LMedS is represented by the thirtieth formula. As shown in FIG. Laser Sensors and other Displacement and Position Sensors from Micro Epsilon use many different measurement principles. Therefore, the accuracy σ is represented by an absolute value of the distribution rate or the overlapping rate. 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. When the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit are great, there may be cases in which the characteristic points cannot be tracked, and the points are partially distributed in an image. 21 B is a flow chart for removing the miscorresponding points by using the vertical parallax. On the other hand, when the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit are relatively small, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the images are evaluated to have high reliability. 17B is a schematic view showing a weighted bundle adjustment related to the third embodiment. By realizing five degree-of-freedom (DOF) measurement of real-time position and orientation of roadheader, this method has been verified by the rapid excavation equipment in Daliuta coal mine. As a result, the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are bundle adjusted so as to be in the area of the solid lined frame shown in FIG. 0000000986 00000 n The accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are obtained 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, in the second embodiment. This technique requires a comprehensive on-site survey and will be inaccurate with any significant change in the environment (due to moving persons or moved objects). 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). The steps S30 to S32 are repeated, and the minimum value (LMdeS) of the central value is obtained (step S33). 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...). A method of bunch by bunch measurement at nanoseconds interval by using cavity beam position monitors. The threshold value for evaluating the errors may be set to be a fixed threshold value which is adjustable, instead of using the robust estimation. A position measurement apparatus and method using laser includes a laser generating device, an image device, and a control unit. A position measurement method includes an exterior orientation parameter correcting step S, 382/103, 382/154, 382/216, 382/291, 382/295, 382/106, 348/42, 348/47-50, 345/419-420. Threshold values for directions and distances of the tracks of the characteristic points are adjustable. Et=vΔt Twenty-second Formula Ext=vxΔt Eyt=vyΔt Ezt=vzΔt Twenty-third Formula. Calculate the differential coefficients from the eighths formula, and make observation formulas. For example, in a case of the single photo orientation, by substituting the exterior orientation parameters (X0, Y0, Z0, ω, φ, κ) and the three-dimensional coordinates (X, Y, Z) of the corresponding point for the collinearity conditional formula of the sixth formula, the image coordinates (x′, y′) are inversely calculated (step S21). where a position solution is not available. Though crude as this methods seems, it is accurate to about 0.1% with ranges up to about 20 feet. When the positional data of the GPS and the IMU and the postural data of the posture sensor are included, the following twenty-ninth formula is used and is minimized. Therefore, the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are calculated regardless of the change of the photographing conditions. Published: Friday, September 9, 2011 - 11:02. A threshold value for the vertical parallax is adjustable. For the angle rate vx, vy, vz, values obtained from the posture sensor and the IMU are used. To evaluate the ACL tunnel position on plain radiographs, the Bernard quadrant method for the femur and the Amis method for the tibia have been widely used. This method uses a single camera to capture the image of a 2D periodic pattern and then uses the 2D discrete Fourier transform (2D DFT) method to estimate the phase of its fundamental frequency component for position measurement. The position value of the same point can be represented by different cell angle values of different tracks and the absolute … 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. Therefore, the y coordinates of the corresponding points in the two images are equal, whereby the vertical parallax in the stereo images is usually zero pixel. The independent variables of interest were hand position (on the hips or free to move) and lower limb length measurement method (lateral malleolus or medial malleolus). 15A shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is zero, FIG. As shown in FIG. Each correction amount in the weighted bundle adjustment is calculated as a value for minimizing the following function G. For example, the symbol “w2” represents a weight of the three-dimensional coordinates obtained by the camera, and the symbols “w3” and “w4” represent weights of the exterior orientation parameters. 278805403 - EP 1906140 A2 20080402 - Device and method for position measurement - A position measurement device is provided that can precisely measure the photographing position or posture of a photographing device or the coordinates of an object based on sequentially changing photographed images. The accuracy of the positional data of the GPS and the postural data of the posture sensor are based on an error caused by 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, and are also based on specific accuracy of the positional data of the GPS and the postural data of the posture sensor. FIGS. 15B shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is negative, and FIG. In this case, the center of the image is assumed to be origin (0, 0). The vertical parallax is obtained by calculating the difference between the y coordinate of the characteristic point in a prior frame and the y coordinate of the characteristic point in a current frame. Removal of the Miscorresponding Points by the Backward Projection. We have proposed a method for measuring a mobile robot's relative position and posture before. The step of removing miscorresponding points is performed after the bundle adjustment (FIGS. When the camera is shifted in a horizontal direction, a distribution rate of the characteristic points in the horizontal direction is calculated as a total value of X coordinates of the characteristic points. Generally, the times of the GPS and the posture sensor are not synchronized with the time of the camera. According to the third embodiment, the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points, and also the positional data of the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data of the posture measuring unit 5, are bundle adjusted at the same time. LMedS=min(med(εi2)) Thirtieth Formula, The number of times required to repeat the steps S20 to S22 is defined by using probability in which an exception value is not included at least one time in q times of the random sampling. The change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit cause difficulty in tracking of the characteristic points and cause decrease in the accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the images. International Search Report for International Application No. In the method for removing the miscorresponding points, the backward projection or the vertical parallax calculated by the relative orientation is used. 0 The present invention can be utilized in a position measurement method, a position measurement device, and programs therefor. Methods: Method 1 uses a cylindrical ion chamber (IC) mounted on a jig corotational with the collimator making the relationship among the chamber, jaws, and CAOR fixed and independent of collimator angle. 0000001432 00000 n 17A. When the camera moves at a rate v (angle rate vx, vy, vz), an error Et of the positional data of the GPS is represented as a twenty-second formula, and errors Ext, Eyt, Ezt of the postural data of the posture sensor are represented as a twenty-third formula. 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. 15C shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is positive. The tracking results of the characteristic points include numerous miscorresponding points. (5) Use the corrected approximate values, and repeat the steps (1) to (4) until the result converges. The bundle adjustment is performed based on these selected exterior orientation parameters. There are five different position values: static; relative; fixed; absolute; sticky; Elements are then positioned using the top, bottom, left, and right properties. Then, as shown in FIG. In this paper, the lasers’ positions are obtained by the elapsed time of the position measurement. 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. measuring the position of a robot’s hand. Although the dipstick and lead line method of level measurement are unrivalled in accuracy, reliability, and dependability, there are drawbacks to this technique. The change of the track direction of the characteristic point is represented as an angle θ between a vector “a” and a vector “b” (tenth formula), and the change of the track distance of the characteristic point is represented as a difference |a−b| of the vector “a” and the vector “b” (eleventh formula). Evaluation According to the Vertical Parallax. Then, image coordinates (x′, y′) of a corresponding point with respect to each of the sampled point are calculated based on the exterior orientation parameters calculated by the backward intersection method (single photo orientation or DLT method) and the three-dimensional coordinates of the tracked corresponding point. For example, the removing of the miscorresponding points by the backward projection using a single photo orientation is used when the change of the scene is large because the miscorresponding points are removed based on one image. In the case shown in FIG. ASM manufactures several different position measuring sensors. ... which is one of the simplest examples using the open setup method. ), 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. In this case, the position measurement method, the position measurement device, and the programs therefor may be used for measuring a position and a posture, at which photograph is performed, and a three-dimensional position of an object, based on moving images. In order to estimate a threshold value for evaluating the errors, a robust estimation may be used. In the LMedS method, compared to the least-squares method, even when numerous outliers are included in the data, the outliers are robustly estimated. 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. In this paper, a novel relative position and orientation (R-P&O) measurement method for large-volume components is proposed. Position Measurement A position sensor is commonly used to measure position on automated equipment. The distribution rate of the characteristic points and the overlapping rate are the total values of the X coordinates and the Y coordinates of the characteristic points which have an origin at the center of the image. Therefore, the accuracy σ is represented as θ or |a−b|. V2���>��Ј��p�/��.P-Vp��2��Ńb ]�c���>-?�k����cgHf�����XE�Hk�} ԂY�T5@A��aW.���m�S#�/�d�o�. 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. 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. For example, in the case of the RTK-GPS (Real Time Kinematic GPS) system, the positioning mode is changed in real time as shown in the Table 1, according to the position of the GPS satellite, the effects of multipath affected by surrounding environment, the correction information from a control station, etc. 16A shows an image in which characteristic points overlapping in prior and subsequent frames are partially distributed, and FIG. 0000000853 00000 n & Terms of Use. 18 and 19) or before the calculation of the exterior orientation parameters (FIG. Therefore, when the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit are relatively great, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the images are evaluated to have low reliability. Basic theory of measurement Figure 1shows the basic configuration for FIG. Threshold values for the distribution rate of the characteristic points and the overlapping rate are adjustable. 0000001466 00000 n 48 13 Application Solutions Positioning For Individuals Looking for Positioning Measurement Systems. Besides distance measurements, measurements regarding vibration, gap, ovality, dimensions etc. The stereo measurement method has been used to identify the positions of a target object. 20). The weights of the positional data of the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data of the posture measuring unit 5 are calculated based on the difference between the photographing timing of the image and the obtaining timing of the positional data of the position measuring unit 4 or the postural data of the posture measuring unit 5. 0000000567 00000 n In the fourth embodiment, by removing points having relatively large errors (miscorresponding points) from the corresponding points which are tracked, calculation accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are improved. 2 Methods of Measurement and Evaluation of Eye, Head and Shoulders Position in Neurological Practice Patrik Kutilek 1, Jiri Hozman 1, Rudolf Cerny 2 and Jan Hejda 1 1Czech Technical University in Prague , Faculty of Biomedical Engineering 2Charles University in Prague, Department of Neurology, 2nd Fa culty of Medicine Czech Republic 1.
