This paper deals with the calibration of a visual system, consisting of RGB cameras and 3D Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) sensors. Registering two separate point clouds coming from different modalities is always challenging. We propose a novel and accurate calibration method using simple cardboard boxes with known sizes. Our approach is principally based on the detection of box planes in LiDAR point clouds, thus it can calibrate different Li-DAR equipments. Moreover, camera-LiDAR
