Error Estimation for Known Marker Position Retrieval by Ideal Pinhole Camera Direct Observation
For Motion Capture in Gait Analysis using Known Spherical Markers one simple direct approach is to compute the projection of the Marker Center using its projection in the Pixel Plane and based on it to find the location of the Marker on the line that connects the Marker Center Projection and the camera Focal Point. For various positions of the Marker in the workspace the exact image of the marker is computed using a genuine approach and compute back the approximation of the position based on the generated image. Various algorithms are taken in consideration and finally the results are assessed from the point of view of Gait Analysis and two directions for calculus improvement are identified.
