    Coordinate transformation


    I am trying to figure out how to compute the transformation of a coordinate system (O_2) from a reference coordinate system (O_0).

    The information I have are as follows:
    - Transformation of one coordinate system (O_1) from the reference (O_0), i.e. R_1 and t_1.
    - Transformation from O_1 to O_2, i.e. R_12 and t_12 - note that R_12 and t_12 are with respective to O_0, the reference coordinate system.

    What I want to find is R_2 and t_2, the transformation of O_2 from O_0. I know for a transformation you use the homogeneous transformation matrix:

    <br />
H = \left[ \begin{array}{cc} R & t \\ 0 & 1 \\ \end{array} \right]<br />

    But am stuck as to how this is applied in this situation...

    Please refer to the diagram below if the description is too confusing

    Many thanks in advance!
