2.2.1. Pinhole camera model

A 2D point is denoted by m = [u, v]T. A 3D point is denoted by M = [X, Y, Z]T. We use to denote the augmented vector by adding 1 as the last element: and . A camera is modeled by the usual pinhole (see Figure 2.1): The image of a 3D point M, denoted by m, is formed by an optical ray from M passing through the optical center C and intersecting ...
