Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, we introduce a new method to tackle Motion Estimation, Correspondence Problem and 3D Reconstruction in underwater environments using an acoustic camera, such as, a DIDSON camera. Here, we mainly focus on motion estimation. We introduce the background on the new concepts of sampling a DIDSON arc and the Modified District Uniform Distribution (MDUD). The motion estimation methodology utilizes weighted-Hough array in choosing a solution from among many potential candidates.
