In this paper, we present a complete system for the recognition and localization of a three-dimensional (3-D) model from a sequence of monocular images with known motion. The originality of this system is twofold. First, it uses a purely 3-D approach, starting from the 3-D reconstruction of the scene and ending by the 3-D matching of the model. Second, unlike most monocular systems, we do not use token tracking to match successive images. Rather, subpixel contour matching is used to recover more precisely complete 3-D contours. In contrast with the token tracking approaches, which yield a representation of the 3-D scene based on disconnected segments or points, this approach provides us with a denser and higher level representation of the scene. The reconstructed contours are fused along successive images using a simple result derived from the Kalman filter theory. The fusion process increases the localization precision and the robustness of the 3-D reconstruction. Finally, corners are extracted from the 3-D contours. They are used to generate hypotheses of the model position, using a hypothesize-and-verify algorithm that is described in detail. This algorithm yields a robust recognition and precise localization of the model in the scene. Results are presented on infrared image sequences with different resolutions, demonstrating the precision of the localization as well as the robustness and the low computational complexity of the algorithms
