3D Camera Calibration
Abstract: We studied the topic of depth sensing camera calibration. Two devices Microsoft Kinect
and Swissranger SR-4000, that work on different physical principles, were investigated.
Both 3D cameras were described and subjected to experiments in order to evaluate
their performance. Several systematic error sources were identified and we proposed
methods to compensate for them. A comparison of reconstruction performance of both
3D cameras and a stereo-pair of conventional cameras was presented. Finally, we showed
an application of the depth sensing camera together with conventional color camera in
area of complex scene reconstruction.
