16A, when the overlapping characteristic points are partially distributed, the exterior orientation parameters calculated from the image are evaluated to have low reliability. 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. In the case shown in FIG. In the case shown in FIG. 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. Introduction 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. We have proposed a method for measuring a mobile robot's relative position and posture before. Privacy Policy 0000001211 00000 n

Therefore, time difference between the obtaining time of the positional data of the GPS and the postural data of the posture sensor and the photographing time of an image, which is photographed at a time nearest to the obtaining time, is represented as Δt. 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. The position Property. In this case, the accuracy of the posture sensor is represented by a twenty-sixth formula. Level Measurement determines the position of the level relative to the top of bottom of the process fluid storage vessel. The converted times include the transmission delay of the positional data and the postural data and the transmission delay of the image data. 1,4 However, the accuracy of these methods has been questioned owing to the limitations of measurements using 2-dimensional (2D) images. 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.

The photographing time of the image and the obtaining time of the positional data of the GPS and the postural data of the posture sensor are represented by the same time axis according to the reference clock 6. True Position Measurement Using portable CMM technology to improve feature location. Moreover, the method for removing the miscorresponding points (residual value calculated by the backward projection or the vertical parallax calculated by the relative orientation) is selected based on the change of the photographing conditions. The cell angles, changing from 0° to 360° between any two neighboring code cells, are defined to represent any position on the code disc. Besides distance measurements, measurements regarding vibration, gap, ovality, dimensions etc. For the encoders, especially the sine-cosine magnetic ones, a new method to measure absolute angular position is proposed in the paper. These sensors a The present invention can be utilized in a position measurement method, a position measurement device, and programs therefor. Removal of the Miscorresponding Point by Using the Vertical Parallax. Therefore, the exterior orientation parameters and the three-dimensional coordinates of the characteristic points are calculated regardless of the change of the photographing conditions. 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. The bundle adjustment is performed based on these selected exterior orientation parameters.

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 vertical parallax is a difference between y coordinates of corresponding points in two images that are stereographed. Privacy Policy & Terms of Use. 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. 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. 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). A threshold value for the vertical parallax is adjustable. 15B shows an image in which a distribution rate of the characteristic points is negative, and FIG.
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. As shown in FIG. © 2004-2021 FreePatentsOnline.com. Although the dipstick and lead line method of level measurement are unrivalled in accuracy, reliability, and dependability, there are drawbacks to this technique. The distribution condition (overlapping rate) of the overlapping characteristic points is evaluated by the method for calculating the distribution rate of the characteristic points. 18 and 19) or before the calculation of the exterior orientation parameters (FIG. 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. v=(Xi−Xi-1)×fps Twenty-fourth Formula.
