The estimation of 3D Euclidean coordinates of features from 2D images is a problem of significant interest. In this paper we develop a 3D Euclidean position estimation strategy for a static object using a single moving camera whose motion is known. The Euclidean depth estimator which is developed has a very simple mathematical structure and is easy to implement. Numerical simulations and preliminary experimental results using a mobile robot in an indoor environment are presented to illustrate the performance of the algorithm. An extension of this estimation technique for a paracatadioptric system is also presented.
