Abstract

In this paper, we apply two fundamental approaches toward evaluating a static, vision based, six-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) pose determination system that measures the position and orientation of a part. The first approach uses ground\-truth carefully obtained from a laser tracker and the second approach avoids using any external ground\-truth. The evaluation procedure focuses on characterizing both the system's accuracy and precision as well as the effect of object viewpoints. For the ground-truth method, we first use a laser tracker for system calibration and then compare the calibrated output with the surveyed pose. In the method without external ground-truth, we evaluate the effect of viewpoint factors on the system's performance.
