Abstract
Estimation of structure and six-degree-of-freedom motion of manoeuvring objects through measurements of feature positions in long, multiple-camera image sequences is widely recognized to have broad industrial, military, and space applications, particularly in the control of autonomous systems. This report focuses on the case of manoeuvring objects thereby removing restrictive assumptions concerning the mode of translational and rotational motion which are commonly employed in manyexisting methods. Object manoeuvres, being "smooth" and time correlated, are modelled as first-order Gauss-Markov processes for both translational and rotational motion. TRUNCATED
