This paper addresses the problem of robust and efficient relative rotation averaging in the context of large-scale Structure from Motion. Relative rotation averaging finds global or absolute rotations for a set of cameras from a set of observed relative rotations between pairs of cameras. We propose a generalized framework of relative rotation averaging that can use different robust loss functions and jointly optimizes for all the unknown camera rotations. Our method uses a quasi-Newton optimization which results in an efficient iteratively reweighted least squares (IRLS) formulation that works in the Lie algebra of the 3D rotation group. We demonstrate the performance of our approach on a number of large-scale data sets. We show that our method outperforms existing methods in the literature both in terms of speed and accuracy.
