Quasi-maximum feasible subsystem for geometric computer vision problems

A robust fitting algorithm for geometric computer vision problems under the L-norm optimisation framework is presented. It is essentially based on the maximum feasible subsystem (MaxFS) but it overcomes the computational limitation of the MaxFS for large data by finding only a quasi-maximum feasible subset.

Experimental results demonstrate that the algorithm removes outliers more effectively than the other parameter estimation methods recently developed when the outline-to-inlier ratio in a data set is high.
