A method is proposed to correct the initial position and pose estimates of a camera-head by aligning a 3D model of its surrounding environment with an observed 2D image that is captured by a foveated wideangle lens in the camera. Because of the wide field of view of the lens, the algorithm can converge even when the initial error is large, and the precision of the result is high since the resolution of the fovea of the lens is high.
