AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION

Autonomous machines and vehicles rely on different sensors to create an accurate 3D perception of the environment. Stereoscopic vision systems are composed of two cameras that must remain calibrated at all times in order to ensure the accuracy of the 3D image they generate. Stereo cameras are directly impacted by minor changes, such as slight movements, which can cause a reduction in accuracy and sometimes even a complete loss of calibration.

the challenge

Stereoscopic vision systems require continuous camera calibration in order to create an accurate stereoscopic 3D perception. External factors, such as small vibration or temperature changes, trigger miscalibration. A miscalibrated system may lead to inaccurate 3D perception of the environment and affect the decision-making mechanism of any automated system.

The most valuable information acquired by stereo vision systems is the depth map of a scene. This depth estimation is quickly affected whenever the internal or external camera parameters change, as seen below.

our solution

Foresight has developed a patented automatic calibration solution designed to ensure that stereo cameras remain calibrated regardless of their configuration or position, in order to create accurate and continuous depth perception.

The solution is designed to fit various industries that are using stereo camera systems for indoor and outdoor depth measuring and can apply automatic calibration in real-time.
