We present a new approach for recognizing the make and model of a car from a single image. While most previous methods are restricted to fixed or limited viewpoints, our system is able to verify a car's make and model from an arbitrary view. Our model consists of 3D space curves obtained by backprojecting image curves onto silhouette-based visual hulls and then refining them using three-view curve matching. These 3D curves are then matched to 2D image curves using a 3D view-based alignment technique. We present two different methods for estimating the pose of a car, which we then use to initialize the 3D curve matching. Our approach is able to verify the exact make and model of a car over a wide range of viewpoints in cluttered scenes.
