Abstract: Non-Rigid Structure from Motion (NRSfM) is the task of reconstructing the 3D point set of a non-rigid object from an ensemble of images with 2D correspondences, which has been a long-lasting challenging research topic. Compared to the state-of-the-art methods for NRSfM, the Procrustean Markov Process (PMP) model has obtained a relatively good performance. However, the estimation error and the convergence time of the PMP model will increase simultaneously when noise is present. To address this problem, in this paper, a coherent constraint is constructed to suppress the noise in the initialization step of the PMP algorithm. Moreover, an Accelerated Expectation Maximization (AEM) algorithm is devised to optimize the PMP estimation model. Experimental results on several widely used sequences demonstrate that our proposed algorithm achieves state-of-the-art performance, as well as its effectiveness and feasibility.
