The majority of computer vision applications assumes that the camera adheres to the pinhole camera model. However, most optical systems will introduce undesirable effects. By far, the most evident of these effects is radial lensing, which is particularly noticeable in fish-eye camera systems, where the effect is relatively extreme. Several authors have(More)
In this paper, we describe a method to photogrammetrically estimate the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of fish-eye cameras using the properties of equidistance perspective, particularly vanishing point estimation, with the aim of providing a rectified image for scene viewing applications. The estimated intrinsic parameters are the optical center and the(More)
The development of electronic vision systems for the automotive market is a strongly growing field, driven in particular by customer demand to increase the safety of vehicles both for drivers and for other road users, including vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as pedestrians. Customer demand is matched by legislative developments in a number of key(More)
— The majority of computer vision applications assume the pin-hole camera model. However, most optics will introduce some undesirable effects, rendering the assumption of the pin-hole camera model invalid. This is particularly evident in cameras with wide fields-of-view. The aim of distortion correction is, therefore, to transform the distorted view of(More)
Radial distortion in an image is a geometric distortion that causes a non-linear variation in resolution across the image, with a higher spatial resolution in the central areas of the image, and lower resolution in the peripheral areas of the image. This is particularly evident in fish-eye cameras, with very wide fields-of-view. Equidistant fish-eye cameras(More)
A technique for calibrating a lens in the automotive environment to compensate for radial distortion introduced by wide-angle or fish-eye lenses, without the need for a dedicated calibration environment, is proposed. At present, car manufacturers are endeavouring to introduce systems that provide the driver with views of the car's surroundings that are not(More)
In Africa there is a need to increase food security especially in the dry season when livelihoods are most at risk. The fingerpond concept is designed to exploit fringe wetlands sustainably for food production whilst conserving swamp integrity and biological diversity. The concept is a marriage of natural wetland phenomena with the historic activities of(More)
With rapid advances in the field of vision based systems and ever increasing applications that they foster to; it brings along many challenges both in terms of algorithm design and associated hardware. One such widely used gadget is the fisheye camera that is used in myriad of applications in various fields owing to their wide Field of View. However, these(More)
