Abstract--Many vision tasks rely upon the identification of sets of corresponding
features among different images. This paper presents a method that, given some
corresponding features in two stereo images, matches them with features
extracted from a second stereo pair captured from a distant viewpoint. The
proposed method is based on the assumption that the viewed scene contains two
planar surfaces and exploits geometric constraints that are imposed by the
existence of these planes to first transfer and then match image features between
the two stereo pairs. The resulting scheme handles point and line features in a
unified manner and is capable of successfully matching features extracted from
stereo pairs that are acquired from considerably different viewpoints. Experimental
results are presented, which demonstrate that the performance of the proposed
method compares favorably to that of epipolar and tensor-based approaches.
