Seeing the Obvious

Abstract

We propose an approach to determine the occurrence of low-parametric qualitative models from images by a hypothesis-and-test approach based on the coincidence of multiple cues, thereby avoiding complete reconstruction of the scene. We apply the approach to finding instances of planar surfaces. A notable feature of the approach is that it finds the most conspicuous exemplar of the model first. This property seems quite relevant for an agent using vision to guide its behaviors, since the simplest solution becomes available early on.
