Robust Factorization Methods Using A Gaussian/Uniform Mixture Model

(1) , (1)


In this paper we address the problem of building a class of robust factorization algorithms that solve for the shape and motion parameters with both affine (weak perspective) and perspective camera models. We introduce a Gaussian/uniform mixture model and its associated EM algorithm. This allows us to address robust parameter estimation within a data clustering approach. We propose a robust technique that works with any affine factorization method and makes it robust to outliers. In addition, we show how such a framework can be further embedded into an iterative perspective factorization scheme. We carry out a large number of experiments to validate our algorithms and to compare them with existing ones. We also compare our approach with factorization methods that use M-estimators.
