This page shall help to define a calibration procedure. Please add your knowledge.

Things to calibrate

  • nonlinear effects for both cameras:
    • radial distortion
    • tangential distortion
    • rotational errors
  • Intrinsics matrix for both: Video camera & Depth Camera
  • Extrinsics matrix for both: Video camera & Depth Camera
  • Registration of both cameras
    • Rotational tolerances
    • ?

Questions to answer:

  • Which parameters change much between different devices,
  • Which change minor (and can be set constant?)
  • Are routines to calculate parameters needed, or could a seperate application be used (based on OpenCV, for example)
