EXPERIMENTING WITH AUTONOMOUS CALIBRATION OF A CAMERA RIG ON A VISION SENSOR NETWORK

Kyung min Han, Yuanqiang Dong, Guilherme DeSouza

Abstract

This paper presents a completely autonomous camera calibration framework for a vision sensor network consisting of a large number of arbitrarily arranged cameras. In the proposed framework, a sequence of images for calibration is collected without a tedious human intervention. Next, the system automatically extracts all necessary features from the images and finds the best set of images that minimizes the error in 3D reconstruction considering all cameras in the set.
