I am trying to find out intrinsic parameters(focal length ,principle point,and lens distortion coefficients)as well as the extrinsic parameters(rotation and translation of each camera relative to the reference frame) of three cameras in the flowing picture.
They are placed at nearly orthogonal angles around a 12x12x12 inch working space. There are four steps:
- capture images of chess board by two cameras at the same time
- use toolbox calib_gui(matlab) to calibrate two cameras separately and get Calib_Results_left.mat and Calib_Results_right.mat.
- put these two results into stereo_calib(matlab) and run Calibration
- repeat step 1~3 on another pair of cameras
However, I was stuck at step 3! None of pair images was found inconsistent. The errors were shown in the following form:
Disabling view 2 - Reason: the left and right images are found inconsistent (try help calib_stereo for more information)
I checked the order of images but didn't find problems. I doubt that my application is not binocular calibration, because intersection angle between two cameras is too big for a stereo-camera!
I just want to find out rotation and translation of each camera relative to the reference frame. Does anybody have any ideas?
