Class Zhang99CalibrationMatrixFromHomographies


public class Zhang99CalibrationMatrixFromHomographies extends Object

Estimates camera calibration matrix from a set of homographies using linear algebra. Based upon the description found in [1], but has been modified to improve stability and flexibility. Two variants are implemented inside this class. One variant assumes that the skew is zero and requires two or more homographies and the other variant does not assume the skew is zero and requires three or more homographies. The calibration matrix structure is shown below.

Calibration matrix is defined as follows:
[ α c u0 ]
[ 0 β v0 ]
[ 0 0 1 ]
where 'c' is the camera's skew.

The zero skew variant is a modification of what was described in [1]. Instead of simply adding another row to force the skew to be zero that entire part of the equation has been omitted. The algorithm described in [1] was numerically unstable and did not produce meaningful results.
