This example demonstrates how to use a high level calibration class that automatically detects calibration targets as viewed from a single (monocular) camera in a set of images. After processing the images the intrinsic camera parameters and lens distortion are saved to an XML file. Both the square grid and chessboard patterns are supported by this example. For a full description of the calibration process and instruction on how to do it yourself see the tutorial linked to below.

Example Code

 * Example of how to calibrate a single (monocular) camera using a high level interface. Depending on the calibration
 * target detector and target type, the entire target might need to be visible in the image. All camera images
 * should be in focus and that target evenly spread through out the images. In particular the edges of the image
 * should be covered.
 * After processing both intrinsic camera parameters and lens distortion are estimated. Square grid and chessboard
 * targets are demonstrated by this example. See calibration tutorial for a discussion of different target types
 * and how to collect good calibration images.
 * All the image processing and calibration is taken care of inside of {@link CalibrateMonoPlanar}. The code below
 * loads calibration images as inputs, calibrates, and saves results to an XML file. See in code comments for tuning
 * and implementation issues.
