At the beginning all points are considered equal, but as we know more about the points and their relation to the underlying model, we can progressively identify and down-weigh the outliers. Let points pi have weights wi ∈ [0, 1], then our new optimization becomes n wi d(l, pi )2 . 12) i=1 Using the vertical distance formulation, the new linear system formulation for fitting a straight line in the LS sense reduces to i wi x2i wi xi wi xi wi a b = i wi x i yi wi yi . 7). If the input point set comes with corresponding confidence measures, we can directly apply the above method.

4 (right). Thus, in the current form, our solution depends on the choice of coordinate system. This should not be the case. The best-fitting line should only depend on the arrangement of the points, and remain unchanged with respect to the point set as long as its arrangement remains fixed. We will come back to this problem later on. 4) to find the optimal choice of a and b. Recall from your calculus lessons that, at points where a function attains its extrema, maxima or minima, its partial derivatives ∂ (with respect to the function parameters) equal zero.

If the bounding boxes of two shapes do not intersect, then the two shapes cannot intersect either; the advantage here is that the intersection test against a box is very quick compared to testing the actual shape. On the other hand, the bounding box should be as tight as possible to prevent “false alarms” where the bounding boxes intersect but the actual objects do not. 2). 2: (a) An axis-aligned bounding box can be easily computed, but if the coordinate system is arbitrary, the box might not be very tight.
