The point x′ in the ﬁgure is the intersection of the image plane and the line through the camera
center and x, and is given by
(x − xc ).
x′ = xc + T
c (x − xc )
Using the deﬁnition of xc we can write f (x) as
f (x) = 1
A(x − xc ) = A(x′ − xc ) = Ax′ + b.
c T (x − xc ) This shows that the mapping f (x) can be interpreted as a projection of x on the image plane to
get x′ , followed by an aﬃne transformation of x′ . We can interpret f (x) as the point x′ expressed
in some two-dimensional coordinate system attached to the image plane.
In this exercise we consider the problem of determining the position of a point x ∈ R3 from its
image in N cameras. Each of the cameras is characterized by a known linear-fractional mapping
fk and camera matrix Pk :
fk ( x ) = cT x
(Ak x + bk ),
+ dk Pk =
66 Ak bk

k , k = 1, . . . , N. The image of the point x in camera k is denoted y (k) ∈ R2 . Due to camera imperfections and
calibration errors, we do not expect the equations fk (x) = y (...
