Visual odometry

The optical flow vector of a moving object in a video sequence.

In robotics and computer vision, visual odometry is the process of determining the position and orientation of a robot by analyzing the associated camera images. It has been used in a wide variety of robotic applications, such as on the Mars Exploration Rovers.[1]

Overview

In navigation, odometry is the use of data from the movement of actuators to estimate change in position over time through devices such as rotary encoders to measure wheel rotations. While useful for many wheeled or tracked vehicles, traditional odometry techniques cannot be applied to mobile robots with non-standard locomotion methods, such as legged robots. In addition, odometry universally suffers from precision problems, since wheels tend to slip and slide on the floor creating a non-uniform distance traveled as compared to the wheel rotations. The error is compounded when the vehicle operates on non-smooth surfaces. Odometry readings become increasingly unreliable over time as these errors accumulate and compound over time.

Visual odometry is the process of determining equivalent odometry information using sequential camera images to estimate the distance traveled. Visual odometry allows for enhanced navigational accuracy in robots or vehicles using any type of locomotion on any surface.

Algorithm

Most existing approaches to visual odometry are based on the following stages.

  1. Acquire input images: using either single cameras.,[2][3] stereo cameras,[3][4] or omnidirectional cameras.[5][6]
  2. Image correction: apply image processing techniques for lens distortion removal, etc.
  3. Feature detection: define interest operators, and match features across frames and construct optical flow field.
    1. Use correlation to establish correspondence of two images, and no long term feature tracking.
    2. Feature extraction and correlation.
    3. Construct optical flow field (Lucas–Kanade method).
  4. Check flow field vectors for potential tracking errors and remove outliers.[7]
  5. Estimation of the camera motion from the optical flow.[8][9][10][11]
    1. Choice 1: Kalman filter for state estimate distribution maintenance.
    2. Choice 2: find the geometric and 3D properties of the features that minimize a cost function based on the re-projection error between two adjacent images. This can be done by mathematical minimization or random sampling.
  6. Periodic repopulation of trackpoints to maintain coverage across the image.

An alternative to feature-based methods is the "direct" or appearance-based visual odometry technique which minimizes an error directly in sensor space and subsequently avoids feature matching and extraction.[4][12][13]

Another method, coined 'visiodometry' estimates the planar roto-translations between images using Phase correlation instead of extracting features.[14][15]

Egomotion

Egomotion is defined as the 3D motion of a camera within an environment.[16] In the field of computer vision, egomotion refers to estimating a camera's motion relative to a rigid scene.[17] An example of egomotion estimation would be estimating a car's moving position relative to lines on the road or street signs being observed from the car itself. The estimation of egomotion is important in autonomous robot navigation applications.[18]

Overview

The goal of estimating the egomotion of a camera is to determine the 3D motion of that camera within the environment using a sequence of images taken by the camera.[19] The process of estimating a camera's motion within an environment involves the use of visual odometry techniques on a sequence of images captured by the moving camera.[20] This is typically done using feature detection to construct an optical flow from two image frames in a sequence[16] generated from either single cameras or stereo cameras.[20] Using stereo image pairs for each frame helps reduce error and provides additional depth and scale information.[21]

Features are detected in the first frame, and then matched in the second frame. This information is then used to make the optical flow field for the detected features in those two images. The optical flow field illustrates how features diverge from a single point, the focus of expansion. The focus of expansion can be detected from the optical flow field, indicating the direction of the motion of the camera, and thus providing an estimate of the camera motion.

There are other methods of extracting egomotion information from images as well, including a method that avoids feature detection and optical flow fields and directly uses the image intensities.[16]
