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 developed models of fish-eye lenses that can be used to describe the fish-eye displacement. Our aim is to evaluate the accuracy of several of…

Analysis of Fish-Eye Lens Camera Self-Calibration
TLDR
An accurate fish-eye lens camera self-calibration method that applies the V-type test object is proposed, which is advantageous for ensuring the accuracy of distortion parameters because of the well-distributed image points.
High precision two-step calibration method for the fish-eye camera.
TLDR
Higher calibration precision is obtained is that this method not only considers the global projection model of the fish-eye camera but also considers the local characteristics, such as small tangential distortion and asymmetry.
Region adaptive correction method for radial distortion of fish-eye image
TLDR
The proposed method is able to correct radial distortion of both areas using region adaptive distortion parameter, which is determined by considering amount of distortion in each region respectively and shows that radial distortions in both areas are corrected.
A method of close-range calibration of fisheye lens camera
TLDR
The paper provides a close range fisheye lens camera model which reflects the relationship between imaging distortion and object distance and demonstrates that the accuracy of image correction was obviously promoted because influence of object distances was well considered.
EXPERIMENTAL ASSESSMENT OF TECHNIQUES FOR FISHEYE CAMERA CALIBRATION
Fisheye lens cameras enable to increase the Field of View (FOV), and consequently they have been largely used in several applications like robotics. The use of this type of cameras in close-range
Parameter-Free Lens Distortion Calibration of Central Cameras
TLDR
A parameter-free camera model where each imaging ray is constrained to a common optical center, forcing the camera to be central is proposed, which can be easily calibrated with a practical procedure which provides a convenient undistortion map that can be used to obtain a virtual pinhole camera.
Fish-eye image of hemi-cylinder unwrapping plane based on a flexible technique
TLDR
The proposed procedure for unwrapping of a fish-eye image with hemi-cylinder algorithm, which estimates the image distortion by using a flexible technique, is very useful for panoramic vision for many applications in vision field of robot.

TLDR
The results indicate that the camera parameters and distortion coefficients were obtained by calibration to correct the original image and to carry out 3D reconstruction of multi-view stereo vision, and the reverse projection error analysis and3D reconstruction visualization of the camera check are proved to be effective in the calibration of the optimized model camera.
Direct fitting of center collinear circles for equidistant fish-eye camera calibration
TLDR
A fast and accurate fitting method that can be used for equidistant fish-eye camera calibration is presented and the superiority of this method to two existing approaches in terms of speed and accuracy is demonstrated.
Fisheye Lens Distortion Calibration Based on the Lens Charactetic Curves
The fisheye lens is a kind of ultra wide angle lens, which can produce a big super-wide-angle lens distortion. In order to cover a large scope of light, barrel distortion is artificially added to the

Camera Calibration with Distortion Models and Accuracy Evaluation
TLDR
A camera model that accounts for major sources of camera distortion, namely, radial, decentering, and thin prism distortions is presented and a type of measure is introduced that can be used to directly evaluate the performance of calibration and compare calibrations among different systems.
Parameter-Free Radial Distortion Correction with Center of Distortion Estimation
TLDR
This work proposes a method of simultaneously calibrating the radial distortion function of a camera and the other internal calibration parameters using a planar (or, alternatively, nonplanar) calibration grid which is captured in several images.
Automatic calibration and removal of distortion from scenes of structured environments
TLDR
The algorithm consists of first doing edge extraction on a possibly distorted video sequence, then doing polygonal approximation with a large tolerance on these edges to extract possible lines from the sequence, and then finding the parameters of the distortion model that best transform these edge to segments.
Decentering distortion of lenses
TLDR
The thin prism model has been widely adopted in the photogrammetric literature to describe the effects of a sensibly decentered lens and its observed characteristics are in general agreethin prism distortion.

A Flexible New Technique for Camera Calibration
TLDR
A flexible technique to easily calibrate a camera that only requires the camera to observe a planar pattern shown at a few (at least two) different orientations is proposed and advances 3D computer vision one more step from laboratory environments to real world use.
