Abstract

This article presents an innovative calibration method for a panoramic vision sensor which is dedicated to the three-dimensional reconstruction of an environment with no prior knowledge. We begin this paper by a detailed presentation of the architecture of the sensor. We mention the general features about central catadioptric sensors and we clarify the fixed viewpoint constraint. Next, a large description of the previous panoramic calibration techniques is given. We mention the different postulates which lead us to envisage the method of calibration presented in this paper. A description of the low-cost calibration test pattern is given. The algorithmic approach developed is detailed. We present the results obtained. Finally, the last part is devoted to the result reviewing.
