Coded mark point, as an important part of automatic matching, is widely used in stereo vision and photogrammetry. An encoding scheme named the Initial Dot encoding scheme, has been designed based on the programme of concentric rings, and which is able to solve restrictions on the number of codes and promote the stability of decoding. The designed coding pattern includes three functional points: locating point, start point and coded point. The maximum coding number of the Initial Dot scheme can reach 262,144 when the number of code bits is 18. The recognition experiments show that the Initial Dot encoding scheme can achieve 100% recognition rate at a 75 degree angle, which is very difficult for other coding schemes. By comparing experiments with the Schneider encoding scheme for a large flexible panel, the recognition rate of the proposed scheme is 99%, which is higher than the recognition rate of 90% of the Schneider scheme. The experimental results indicate that the Initial Dot encoding scheme can be successfully applied on flexible solar panels under a 1000 mm × 500 mm field of view. View Full-Text
