  • Patent number: 10719944
    Abstract: A method of determining and displaying movement of an object in an environment using a moving camera includes identifying later environment features located in the environment in a later image, earlier environment features located in the environment in an earlier image, and earlier object features located on the object in the earlier image. The method further includes estimating object features in the later image using the earlier object features and a determined camera movement. The method further includes locating, in the later image, matched object features that are actual object features in the later image at a same location as the estimated object features. The method further includes determining that the object has moved between the earlier image and the later image if a number of matched object features does not exceed a threshold.

  • Publication number: 20200219312
    Abstract: Systems and methods for image based location estimation are described. In one example embodiment, a first positioning system is used to generate a first position estimate. Point cloud data describing an environment is then accessed. A two-dimensional surface of an image of an environment is captured, and a portion of the image is matched to a portion of key points in the point cloud data. An augmented reality object is then aligned within one or more images of the environment based on the match of the point cloud with the image. In some embodiments, building façade data may additionally be used to determine a device location and place the augmented reality object within an image.
