Single Camera Calibration using partially visible calibration objects based on Random Dots Marker Tracking Algorithm
The IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR), Workshop on Tracking Methods and Applications, 2012 (bib)

Camera calibration is one of the long existing research issues in computer vision domain. Typical calibration methods take two steps for the procedure: control points localization and camera parameters computation. In practical situation, control points localization is a time-consuming task because the localization puts severe assumption that the calibration object should be visible in all images. To satisfy the assumption, users may avoid moving the calibration object near the image boundary. As a result, we estimate poor quality parameters. In this paper, we aim to solve this partial occlusion problem of the calibration object. To solve the problem, we integrate a planar marker tracking algorithm that can track its target marker even with partial occlusion. Specifically, we localize control points by a RANdom DOts Markers (RANDOM) tracking algorithm that uses markers with randomly distributed circle dots. Once the control points are localized, they are used to estimate the camera parameters. The proposed method is validated with both synthetic and real world experiments. The experimental results show that the proposed method realizes camera calibration from image on which part of the calibration object is visible.
