<p>The authors address the problem of generating representations of 3-D objects automatically from exploratory view sequences of unoccluded objects. In building the models, processed frames of a video sequence are clustered into view categories called aspects, which represent characteristic views of an object invariant to its apparent position, size, 2-D orientation, and limited foreshortening deformation. The aspects as well as the aspect transitions of a view sequence are used to build (and refine) the 3-D object representations online in the form of aspect-transition matrices. Recognition emerges as the hypothesis that has accumulated the maximum evidence at each moment. The 'winning' object continues to refine its representation until either the camera is redirected or another hypothesis accumulates greater evidence. This work concentrates on 3-D appearance modeling and succeeds under favorable viewing conditions by using simplified processes to segment objects from the scene and derive the spatial agreement of object features.</p>
