Detailed Description

This class defines shared methods/attributes for 2D moments.

All moments or combination of moments in the moments module are based on this class. A moment uses a vpMomentObject object to access all useful information. Moment values are obtained by a 4-step process common for all moment types:

  • Declaration.
    vpMoment moment;
  • Update with object.
  • Compute the moment value
  • Access the values:
    std::vector<double> values = moment.get();

A moment may also be linked to a vpMomentDatabase. Moments linked to a database are able to access each others values. Some moments can be computed only if they are linked to a a database containing their dependencies. Linking to a database is done using the vpMoment::linkTo(...) method.

There are no constraints about format of the array returned by vpMoment::get(); any implementation is fine.

Each moment must have a string name by implementing the char* vpMoment::name() method which allows to identify the moment in the database. Each moment must also implement a compute method describing how to obtain its values from the object.

Order of moment computation DOES matter: when you compute a moment using vpMoment::compute(), all moment dependencies must be computed. We recall that implemented moments are:

void vpMoment::linkTo ( vpMomentDatabase data_base)

Links the moment to a database of moment primitives. If the moment depends on other moments, these moments must be linked to the same database.

Two moments of the same class cannot be stored in the same database

virtual const char* vpMoment::name ( ) const
pure virtual
void vpMoment::printDependencies ( std::ostream &  os) const

Prints values of all dependent moments required to calculate a specific vpMoment. Not made pure to maintain compatibility Recommended : Types inheriting from vpMoment should implement this function

Reimplemented in vpMomentAlpha, vpMomentAreaNormalized, vpMomentGravityCenter, vpMomentCentered, vpMomentBasic, vpMomentGravityCenterNormalized, and vpMomentArea.

void vpMoment::update ( vpMomentObject moment_object)

Updates the moment with the current object. This does not compute any values.

moment_object: object descriptor of the current camera vision.
