This paper describes three new methods for reconstructing a 3D rigid curve from a sequence of images using a 3D epipolar parameterization. It will be shown that such a 3D curve reconstruction is possible when the camera motion is known, except for the points where the epipolar lines are tangential to the curve and the image contours are singular. All the three new methods are treated as parameter estimation problems. Here the parameter is the position of control points of 3D B-spline curves, and surface patches. Experimental results are presented for real data.
