Experimental study on the sensitivity of autocalibration to projective camera model parameters

Hassanpour, Reza

Existing methods of 3-D object modeling and recovering 3-D data from uncalibrated 2-D images are subject to errors introduced by assumptions about camera parameters and mismatches in finding point pairs in the images. In this study, we experimentally evaluate the effect of each of these assumptions together with the inaccuracy in the measurements in the images. Sensitivity of reconstruction errors to inaccuracies in the estimation of camera parameters and mismatches due to noise in input data is measured using a linear and two nonlinear autocalibration methods for a projective camera. Our experimental results show that some assumptions such as a vanishing skew can be safely made; however, other parameters such as principal point location are quite sensitive to wrong assumptions.

Determination of the position and orientation of rigid bodies by using single camera images
Kilic, Varlik; Platin, Bülent Emre (2007-07-04)
This study aims to present a new reconstruction method which enables reconstruction of 3D configuration of an object using single camera images. A secondary planar target which is a white circle with two internal black spots, one is located at the center, is used. The proposed reconstruction method is monocular and non-iterative. The elliptical contour and spot center locations of the target in an image is used to determine the 6-DOF configuration parameters of an object, on which the secondary target is ri...
First-order and second-order statistical analysis of 3d and 2d image structure
Kalkan, Sinan; Kruger, N. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-06-01)
In the first part of this article, we analyze the relation between local image structures (i.e., homogeneous, edge-like, corner-like or texture-like structures) and the underlying local 3D structure (represented in terms of continuous surfaces and different kinds of 3D discontinuities) using range data with real-world color images. We find that homogeneous image structures correspond to continuous surfaces, and discontinuities are mainly formed by edge-like or corner-like structures, which we discuss regard...

A novel watermarking method is presented in which the data embedded into a 3D model is extracted from an arbitrary 2D view by using a perspective projective invariant. The data is embedded into 3D positions of selected interest points on a 3D mesh. Determining the interest point modification vectors for ensuring watermark detection constitutes an important part of the proposed method. Different watermark embedding schemes based on optimization of the watermark function are implemented and evaluated. Another...
Camera auto-calibration using a sequence of 2D images with small rotations and translations
Hassanpour, R; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (2003-01-01)
3D model generation needs depth information of the object in the input images. This information can be found using stereo imaging but it needs camera parameters. Camera calibration is not possible without some knowledge about the objects in the scene or assuming fixed or known values for the camera parameters. When using fixed camera parameters, however, small rotation angles or small translation in camera position can degenerate the results. The degeneracy can be omitted by adding new restrictions to the a...
3-D motion estimation of rigid objects for video coding applications using an improved iterative version of the E-matrix method
Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (1998-02-01)
As an alternative to current two-dimensional (2-D) motion models, a robust three-dimensional (3-D) motion estimation method is proposed to be utilized in object-based video coding applications, Since the popular E-matrix method is well known for its susceptibility to input errors, a performance indicator, which tests the validity of the estimated 3-D motion parameters both explicitly and implicitly, is defined. This indicator is utilized within the RANSAC method to obtain a robust set of 2-D motion correspo...
