Example Detect Calibration Target

From BoofCV
Jump to: navigation, search

BoofCV provides fully automated calibration target detection. Once detected calibration point locations are returned with a high level of precision. While intended for camera calibration, they can also be used for other applications, such as augmented reality. In this example it is demonstrated how to detect different types of grid based targets.

/**
 * Example that demonstrates how to detect calibration targets.  Calibration points are found on the
 * targets to a high level of precision.  It is assumed that a single image only shows a single target
 * and that the entire target is visible.  If these conditions are not meet then the target is likely
 * to not be detected.
