Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents a method for both recognising and determining the position and orientation of occluded objects. The method works by determining the extreme points of the collection of objects, and then matching these points to a database of known objects using point-pattern matching. The results of the method are insensitive to both noise and affine transformations. Computer-vision examples are given.
