This paper introduces a novel, robust approach for 6DOF motion estimation of a multi-camera system with non-overlapping views. The proposed approach is able to solve the pose estimation, including scale, for a two camera system with non-overlapping views. In contrast to previous approaches, it degrades gracefully if the motion is close to degenerate. For degenerate motions the technique estimates the remaining 5DOF. The proposed technique is evaluated on real and synthetic sequences.
