Point-less calibration: Camera parameters from gradient-based alignment to edge images

Peter Carr, Yaser Sheikh, Iain Matthews
2012 2012 IEEE Workshop on the Applications of Computer Vision (WACV)  
Overhead schematics of many environments resemble edge images. Edge images are difficult to align using image-based algorithms because both the image and its gradient are sparse.  ...  As a result, we are able to calibrate our camera models robustly using regular gradient-based image alignment, given an initial ground to image homography estimate.  ...  Previous Work Image-Based Calibration Image-based calibration estimates camera parameters directly from pixel intensities.  ...

Multi-FEAT: Multi-Feature Edge AlignmenT for Targetless Camera-LiDAR Calibration [article]

Bichi Zhang, Raj Thilak Rajan
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This paper introduces a novel approach for targetless camera-LiDAR extrinsic calibration called Multi-FEAT (Multi-Feature Edge AlignmenT).  ...  Multi-FEAT uses the cylindrical projection model to transform the 2D(Camera)-3D(LiDAR) calibration problem into a 2D-2D calibration problem, and exploits various LiDAR feature information to supplement  ...  eliminating the low-quality edges influenced by the occlusion effect. • A cost function is designed to align the edge intensities of the camera images' edge probability acquired from the multi-feature  ...
