Paper Title:
A Novel Point Matching Method for Stereovision Measurement Using RANSAC Affine Transformation
  Abstract

A binocular point matching method using affine transformation is presented in this paper to deal with matching ambiguities. The epipolar geometry is used to determine all the possible matching pairs to form an initial correspondence data set. Then, an affine registration model with four parameters that is invariant to scaling, rotation and translation is built using the Random Sample Consensus (RANSAC) method to describe the coordinate transformation between the two members of correspondences. Finally, correspondences are picked out using minimal nearest neighbor distances based on the geometric similarity between the right image points and the transformed left ones. The proposed method is applied to measure the profile of a 3.5m parabolic reflector of an inflatable antenna and proved to be able to handle the extra or missing point matching problems coursed by occlusion and sheltering. Satisfactory results are obtained with high correct rate for matching most image pairs despite the significantly different viewpoints, which indicates its validity and application feasibility in automatic stereovision measurement field.
