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. 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. For example, the symbol “w5” represents a weight of the positional data of the GPS, the symbol “w6” represents a weight of the positional data of the IMU, and the symbol “w7” represents a weight of the postural data of the posture sensor. For compensation of the effect of air flow, the method requires introducing a further measurement. Basic theory of measurement Figure 1shows the basic configuration for 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. In the third embodiment, a weighted bundle adjustment is performed. Femoral Tunnel Measurement: Method A 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. startxref
Accordingly, the errors of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are decreased. 14B, when tracking distances of the subsequently detected characteristic points are greatly changed by double, quadruple, etc., with respect to the prior tracking distances, the photographing scene is evaluated to be changed. Then, points having large errors are removed by using the value of the LMedS calculated in the step S33 as a threshold value (step S34). 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. FIGS. 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. 16A, when the overlapping characteristic points are partially distributed, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the image are evaluated to have low reliability. 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. Threshold values for the distribution rate of the characteristic points and the overlapping rate are adjustable. G=[w1(Δxi2+Δyi2)]+[w2(ΔXi2+ΔYi2+ΔZi2)]+[w3(Δωi2+Δφi2+Δκi2)]+[w4(ΔX02+ΔY02+ΔZ02)] Twenty-eighth Formula. Published: Friday, September 9, 2011 - 11:02. Position Measurement A position sensor is commonly used to measure position on automated equipment. As shown in FIG. 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. Therefore, when there is not less than 1 pixel of the vertical parallax, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the image are not used, and the positional data obtained from the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data obtained from the posture measuring unit 5 are used. P=1−{1−(1−cn}q Thirty-first Formula. 60 0 obj<>stream
Calculate the differential coefficients from the eighths formula, and make observation formulas. 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. As shown in FIG. 0000001432 00000 n
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. 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 reference for evaluating the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit. 0000003953 00000 n
The position property specifies the type of positioning method used for an element.. 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. When the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the images are evaluated to have low reliability, the positional data obtained from the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data obtained from the posture measuring unit 5 are used whereas the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the images are not used. 16A shows an image in which characteristic points overlapping in prior and subsequent frames are partially distributed, and FIG. Application Solutions Positioning For Individuals Looking for Positioning Measurement Systems. If the accuracy of each data is represented as u, the weight w is calculated from a twenty-first formula. In order to estimate a threshold value for evaluating the errors, a robust estimation may be used. 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. 15A shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is zero, FIG.

In the case shown in FIG. 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. 0000006711 00000 n
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. Removal of the Miscorresponding Point by Using the Vertical Parallax. According to this embodiment, errors due to the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit are decreased. The frame rate of the moving image do not coincide with the obtaining rate of the GPS and the posture sensor, whereby the photographing timing of the image do not synchronize with the obtaining timing of the positional data of the GPS and the postural data of the posture sensor. 15C shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is positive. 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. 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). xref
Experiment results show that the accuracy of orientation measurement is better than 0.1°, the standard deviation of static drift is better than 0.25° and the accuracy of position measurement is … 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. v=(Xi−Xi-1)×fps Twenty-fourth Formula. 14,24,32 Therefore, evaluation using 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) images … Then, the exterior orientation parameters are corrected by using the positional data obtained from the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data obtained from the posture measuring unit 5. 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. Therefore, the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are calculated regardless of the change of the photographing conditions. The position measurement method according to claim 1, wherein the bundle-adjusting step bundle-adjusts by calculating weight of the photographing position and the photographing posture measured outside and weights of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points, and by weighting each data. 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. Since the vertical parallax is the difference between the y coordinates of the characteristic points in the stereo images, the accuracy σ is represented by an absolute value of the difference between the y coordinates of the characteristic points. 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. 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. w=1/σ2 Twenty-first Formula Accuracy of the Positional Data of the GPS and the Postural Data of the Posture Sensor. Removal of the Miscorresponding Points by the Backward Projection. In the case shown in FIG. Then, best data are selected from the group consisting of the positional data of the GPS, the postural data of the posture sensor, and the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the camera, for the exterior orientation parameters to be bundle adjusted. 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. In the method, the code disc of the encoder has only two circle tracks and each one was divided into and () equal code cells. Level Measurement determines the position of the level relative to the top of bottom of the process fluid storage vessel. When the camera is shifted in a vertical direction, the distribution rate of the characteristic points in the vertical direction is calculated as a total value of Y coordinates of the characteristic points. 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. Veel vertaalde voorbeeldzinnen bevatten "positioning measurement" – Engels-Nederlands woordenboek en zoekmachine voor een miljard Engelse vertalingen. In this case, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the image are used. 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. 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. Two quantitative methods of measuring electron beam spot position with respect to the collimator axis of rotation (CAOR) are described. In this case, the exterior orientation parameters are corrected by using the positional data obtained from the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data obtained from the position measuring unit 5. 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). 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. 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. 17B. 18 to 20 are flow charts including a step of removing miscorresponding points. The change of the tracking distance is the difference between the length of the track vector “a” of the characteristic point in the prior frame and the length of the track vector “b” of the subsequently detected characteristic point. ), 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 weight is calculated based on the accuracy of each data. Measurement Science and Technology PAPER A measurement method of cutting tool position for relay fabrication of microstructured surface To cite this article: Yuan-Liu … 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. In our previous method, the position of the robot is measured by the positions of movable lasers and PSD outputs. The rate v is calculated from a moving distance of the characteristic point in the moving image and the frame rate of the moving image. 21A is a flow chart for removing the miscorresponding points by the backward projection, and FIG. 18, the calculation accuracy of the exterior orientation parameters of the subsequent frames is improved.

For the encoders, especially the sine-cosine magnetic ones, a new method to measure absolute angular position is proposed in the paper. 17A is a schematic view showing a bundle adjustment related to the first and the second embodiments. 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. 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. If the photographing unit is shifted, the vertical parallax does not come to zero pixel. For example, if the rate of the exception value in the whole data is represented as “c”, the probability P is represented by the following thirty-first formula. When the change of the photographing scene and the shift of the photographing unit are great, there may be cases in which characteristic points overlapping in the prior and the subsequent frames are partially distributed.
The bundle adjustment is performed based on these selected exterior orientation parameters. 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 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. 17A. 0

To increase the practicality of the two measurement methods introduced in Part 1, procedures for obtaining well distributed measurements are proposed and supported by programs which aid the choice of the lengths of the ball-bar and the determination of the disposition of the magnetic sockets. Though crude as this methods seems, it is accurate to about 0.1% with ranges up to about 20 feet. Figure 1. 1,4 However, the accuracy of these methods has been questioned owing to the limitations of measurements using 2-dimensional (2D) images. Specifically, the LMedS estimation is superior in robustness, and the miscorresponding points are automatically removed even when the error range is unknown.

Therefore, even when the photographing timing of the image do not synchronize with the obtaining timing of the positional data of the position measuring unit 4 and the postural data of the posture measuring unit 5, the errors of the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are decreased. As shown in FIG. In the case shown in FIG. We have proposed a method for measuring a mobile robot's relative position and posture before. 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. 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. The vertical parallax is a difference between y coordinates of corresponding points in two images that are stereographed. 21 B is a flow chart for removing the miscorresponding points by using the vertical parallax. Both percentiles and quartiles are statistical measures of position ; that is, they do not measure a central tendency or a spread (dispersion), but instead measure location in a data set. For example, a LMedS estimation (Least Median of Squares estimation), a RANSAC estimation (RANdom SAmple Consensus estimation), and an M estimation may be used. b=(x1-x0)(x2-x1)+(y1-y0)(y2-y1)(x1-x0)2+(y1-y0)2(x2-x1)2+(y2-y1)2NineteenthFormula. On the other hand, in the third embodiment, the exterior orientation parameters are not corrected by using best data, but the positional data of the GPS, the postural data of the posture sensor, and the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the camera, are weighted and are bundle adjusted. This method is based on triangulation using two pan-tilt cameras, which are mounted on turntables with two rotating axes. Laser Sensors and other Displacement and Position Sensors from Micro Epsilon use many different measurement principles. 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). A modification of the first and the second embodiments will be described hereinafter. 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. First, corresponding points which are tracked are randomly sampled (step S20). The stereo images are a pair of images and are made of two images photographed by cameras in a condition in which the optical axes are parallel, and directions intersecting a baseline direction at a right angle are parallel. c: Focal point distance x,y,z: Image coordinates, X,Y,Z: Objective space coodinates (reference point, unknown point), Δx, Δy: Correction terms of internal orientation of a camera, ω,φ,κ: Posture of a camera (angles of x,y,z axes rotated from X,Y,Z axes), ε: Error between the image coordinates of the tracked corresponding point and the image coordinates calculated by the backward intersection method, P: Rate in which an exception value is not included at least one time in q times of the random sampling. In this case, the center of the image is assumed to be origin (0, 0). Then, points having large errors are removed by using the value of the LMedS calculated in the step S23 as a threshold value (step S24). Furthermore, for example, as shown in FIG. For the angle rate vx, vy, vz, values obtained from the posture sensor and the IMU are used. These overlapping characteristic points are points obtained by tracking the characteristic points. Therefore, the accuracy σ is represented as θ or |a−b|. © 2004-2021 FreePatentsOnline.com. Is zero, FIG measuring method as well as the difference between y coordinates of robot.
