RESFM: Robust Equivariant Multiview Structure from Motion

Multiview Structure from Motion is a fundamental and challenging computer vision problem. A recent deep-based approach was proposed utilizing matrix equivariant architectures for the simultaneous recovery of camera pose and 3D scene structure from large image collections. This work however made the unrealistic assumption that the point tracks given as input are clean of outliers. Here we propose an architecture suited to dealing with outliers by adding an inlier/outlier classifying module that respects the model equivariance and by adding a robust bundle adjustment step. Experiments demonstrate that our method can be successfully applied in realistic settings that include large image collections and point tracks extracted with common heuristics and include many outliers.
