In this thesis we describe an efficient algorithm to compute this kind of representation, which can be successfully exploited in several projective geometry problems, such as 3D reconstruction, motion estimation, calibration, and in interpretation related tasks, all of them critical for robot navigation.
Perhaps better application of geometry -- and better understanding of the place of projective geometry in the study of vision -- will prevent the theoretical misunderstanding of vision as a distance sense, and may encourage the better understanding of vision as a light sense, consonant with the development of an ecological optics.
