This paper proposes an invariance based recognition scheme for scenes with multiple repeated components. The scheme considers three component subsets which characterize the scene completely. Each such three component subset is reconstructed using single image based information. We have developed a mathematical framework for the projective reconstruction based on relative affine structure of each such three component building block. This is extended to the case when each of the components is a quadric. A set of projective invariants of three quadrics has also been obtained by us. Although the reconstruction scheme is general and applicable to all multiple repeated components, it requires the computation of infinite homography. The infinite homography and hence the reconstruction scheme are only image computable with the given information in the case of translational repetition, We therefore develop a recognition strategy for the specific case of translationally repeated quadrics. As a recognition strategy for scenes with multiple translationally repeated quadric components, we propose to compute and store invariant values for each such three component subsets. Experiments on real data have shown the applicability of this approach for recognition of aerial images of power plants. The discriminatory power of the invariants and the stability of the recognition results have also been experimentally demonstrated. © 2001 Elsevier Science (USA).
