Abstract

It is known that rotationally symmetric surfaces can be recognized from their outlines alone, using crossratio's of bitangent intersections. This paper demonstrates a successful implementation of this technique, using a novel bitangent finder, that works on images of real scenes. We report on the stability of the crossratio's and compare this to affine invariants. The recognition technique is shown to extend to the case of straight homogeneous generalised cylinders.
