Abstract:
This paper presents a robust camera calibration algorithm based on contour matching of a known pattern object. The method does not require a fastidious selection of particular pattern points. We introduce two versions of our algorithm, depending on whether we dispose of a single or several calibration images. We propose an evaluation procedure which can be applied for all calibration methods for stereo systems with unlimited number of cameras. We apply this evaluation framework to 3 camera calibration techniques, our proposed robust algorithm, the modified Zhang algorithm implemented by J. Bouguet and Faugeras-Toscani method. Experiments show that our proposed robust approach presents very good results in comparison with the two other methods. The proposed evaluation procedure gives a simple and interactive tool to evaluate any camera calibration method.
