Part of the Monographs in Computer Science book series (MCS)


The Panoramic stereovision sensor introduced in the last chapter is based on two rotating linear cameras. This chapter deals with the calibration of a stereo head composed of two linear cameras. Though the calibration of CCD matrix cameras has received a lot of attention, few methods of calibration of linear CCD are described [111, 68, 23]. The following parts are organized as follows. The first part presents a calibration method of the panoramic stereovision sensor using a classical sketch of calibration. The second part introduces a more unusual calibration method based on normalized vectors to express points appearing in the scene.
