On Optimal Multi-Sensor Network Configuration for 3D Registration
AbstractMulti-sensor networks provide complementary information for various taskslike object detection, movement analysis and tracking. One of the important ingredientsfor efficient multi-sensor network actualization is the optimal configuration of sensors.In this work, we consider the problem of optimal configuration of a network of coupledcamera-inertial sensors for 3D data registration and reconstruction to determine humanmovement analysis. For this purpose, we utilize a genetic algorithm (GA) based optimizationwhich involves geometric visibility constraints. Our approach obtains optimal configurationmaximizing visibility in smart sensor networks, and we provide a systematic study usingedge visibility criteria, a GA for optimal placement, and extension from 2D to 3D.Experimental results on both simulated data and real camera-inertial fused data indicate weobtain promising results. The method is scalable and can also be applied to other smartnetwork of sensors. We provide an application in distributed coupled video-inertial sensorbased 3D reconstruction for human movement analysis in real time. View Full-Text
