Rigidity and reflectivity are important properties of objects, identifying these properties is a fundamental problem for many computer vision applications like motion and tracking. In this paper, we extend our previous work to propose a motion analysis based approach for detecting the object's rigidity and reflectivity. This approach consists of two steps. The first step aims to identify object rigidity based on motion estimation and optic flow matching. The second step is to classify specular rigid and diffuse rigid objects using structure from motion and Procrustes analysis. We show how rigid bodies can be detected without knowing any prior motion information by using a mutual information based matching method. In addition, we use a statistic way to set thresholds for rigidity classification. Presented results demonstrate that our approach can efficiently classify the rigidity and reflectivity of an object. © 2010 IEEE.

Zang, D.; Doerschner, Katja; Schrater P.R. (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2009)Rigidity and reflectance are key object properties, important in their own rights, and they are key properties that stratify motion reconstruction algorithms. However, the inference of rigidity and reflectance are both ...
