[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper outlines a strategy for representing and localising rigid three dimensional objects in images using edge data. A probabilistic metric combining edge strength and corresponding orientation information is developed to support this process. A process of lateral feature shifting in the image plane is presented to quantitatively account for a range of modelling/ illumination dependencies. We show that this mechanism is required to get good agreement between model and image data.
