<p>The specific problem addressed by the authors is how to detect the true match of a fourth point from among candidate matches in a situation in which three points have already been matched. The two sets of points to be matched are both subject to measurement errors. The depth error is more dominant than errors in the other two coordinates; however, the exact statistical distribution of the measurement errors is not known. The authors present a new method for solving the problem. The method is based on the technique of motion analysis using orthographic views. It discards the noisy z (depth) coordinates and uses only the x and y coordinates of the points to verify the match. The effect of depth errors on the motion estimate is completely prevented. Results show that this method is substantially more effective than previous methods that use all three coordinates.</p>
