To balance the accuracy and efficiency in multiple-view triangulation with sequential images, a high-efficiency propagation-based incremental triangulation (INT) method, carving three-dimensional (3D) scene points by updating the incoming feature track one by one without iterations, is proposed. Based on the INT method, a more accurate iteration-limited INT method is also established with few iterations to bound the propagated errors, ensuring the accuracy of subsequent 3D reconstruction. Finally, experimental results demonstrate that the proposed methods can balance the efficiency and accuracy in different multiple-view INT situations.
