CamCal 011 Fundamental Matrix

Highlights: In this post we will learn about fundamental matrix and we will continue our series about stereo vision. In the last post we concluded that if we have enough points we should be able to figure out the constraints for the epipolar line. So for this, we will need to calculate a fundamental matrix. Tutorial Overview: Weak calibration Uncalibrated Case Matrix Multiplication Properties of the Fundamental Matrix Intro In previous posts we have developed…

CamCal 006 Ideal vs Real Intrinsic Parameters

Highlights: Here, we are going to talk about intrinsic camera calibration. We will present the main difference between ideal and real intrinsic parameters, how to improve them, and how to combine them. Here we will also talk about camera parameters, which will be of great importance for further understanding. Tutorial Overview: Intro Ideal vs Real Intrinsic Parameters Improving Intrinsic Parameters Combining Extrinsic and Intrinsic Calibration Parameters Other Ways Camera Parameters 1. Intro So first, just…

CamCal 003 Camera Transformation

Highlights: In this post we will talk about camera calibration technique, and rigid body transformations. You will also see how translation and rotation works. Tutorial Overview: Intro Geometric camera calibration Rigid body transformations´╗┐ Notation Rotation 1. Intro In this post, we’re going to talk about extrinsic camera calibration and here is the model that we are going to use. In particular, we had a system where we had a center of projection (COP) that was…

CamCal 010 Essential Matrix Computation – an example

Highlights: In this post we will show some essential matrix computation for the example of parallel cameras. In addition, you will see why it can be useful for. Tutorial Overview: This post covers the following topics: Computation The use of the Essential Matrix 1. Computation In the last post we talked about essential matrix and what it does. Now we are going to show how it is computed. So we have two parallel image planes,…

CamCal 002 Weak Perspective

Highlights: In this post we will talk about how human vision can be tricked with a Perspective Projection model, and we will present one new model, which is called Weak Perspective. Tutorial Overview: Human vision Weak perspective 1. Human vision Humans are very sensitive to this structure of parallel lines and what they convey to us. Probably most of you have seen this Muller-Lyer illusion. Which one of these lines is longer? And you probably…
