Absolute poses associated with views in view set

Since R2020a



sensorPoses = poses(vSet) returns a table of absolute poses associated with the views contained in the view set, vSet.


collapse all

Load images into the workspace.

imageDir = fullfile(toolboxdir("vision"),"visiondata","structureFromMotion");
images = imageDatastore(imageDir);

Compute features for the first image.

I = im2gray(readimage(images,1));
pointsPrev = detectSURFFeatures(I);
[featuresPrev,pointsPrev] = extractFeatures(I,pointsPrev);

Create an image view set and add the extracted feature points to the image view set.

vSet = imageviewset;
vSet = addView(vSet,1,Points=pointsPrev);

Compute features and matches for the rest of the images.

for i = 2:numel(images.Files)
 I = im2gray(readimage(images,i));
 points = detectSURFFeatures(I);
 [features,points] = extractFeatures(I,points);
 vSet = addView(vSet,i,Features=features,Points=points);
 pairsIdx = matchFeatures(featuresPrev,features);
 vSet = addConnection(vSet,i-1,i,Matches=pairsIdx);
 featuresPrev = features;

Get the absolute poses.

sensorPoses = poses(vSet)

Image view set, specified as an imageviewset object.

Output Arguments
