FAST AND RESISTANT PROCRUSTEAN BUNDLE ADJUSTMENT
Keywords: Bundle adjustment, Orthogonal Procrustes, Block relaxation, Robust statistics
Abstract. In a recent paper (Fusiello and Crosilla, 2015) a Procrustean formulation of the bundle block adjustment has been presented, with a solution based on alternating least squares. This paper improves on it in two respects: it introduces a faster iterative scheme that minimizes the same cost function, thereby achieving the same accuracy, and makes the method resistant to rogue measures through iteratively reweighted least-squares. Empirical results confirm the effectiveness of these enhancements.
