Photogrammetric Camera Component Calibration: A Review of Analytical Techniques

  • Clive S. Fraser
Part of the Springer Series in Information Sciences book series (SSINF, volume 34)

Summary

As the field of computer vision advances, more and more applications are calling for enhanced metric performance. Central to any consideration of metric accuracy is the subject of camera system calibration. Analytical camera calibration techniques developed over the past four decades in photogrammetry are very applicable to the video cameras used in today’s machine vision systems. This chapter reviews modern analytical camera calibration techniques employed by photogrammetrists and discusses the potential of these methods for video cameras (principally CCD cameras). Analytical restitution is briefly overviewed, the parameterization of the calibration components is reviewed, and the methods of parameter determination are discussed. The use of photogrammetric calibration techniques offers a means of significantly improving the accuracy of spatial position and orientation information in computer and machine vision systems.
