Minimal Solutions for Panoramic Stitching with Radial Distortion

Abstract
This paper presents a solution to panoramic image stitching of two images with co-

inciding optical centers, but unknown focal length and radial distortion. The algorithm

operates with a minimal set of corresponding points (three) which means that it is well

suited for use in any RANSAC style algorithm for simultaneous estimation of geometry

and outlier rejection. Compared to a previous method for this problem, we are able to

guarantee that the right solution is found in all cases. The solution is obtained by solving

a small system of polynomial equations. The proposed algorithm has been integrated in

a complete multi image stitching system and we evaluate its performance on... (More)
This paper presents a solution to panoramic image stitching of two images with co-

a small system of polynomial equations. The proposed algorithm has been integrated in

a complete multi image stitching system and we evaluate its performance on real images

with lens distortion. We demonstrate both quantitative and qualitative improvements

compared to state of the art methods. (Less)
