The accuracy of three dimensional vision depends heavily on the accuracy of camera calibration. A major source of calibration error is the system nonlinearity due mainly to optical aberration. Although there are various physical models that have been employed to correct the nonlinear image distortion due to the aberration, it is uncertain practically that which model best fits a given optical system. In this paper, an intelligent learning technique to correct errors from the nonlinear optics is…

A new method for linear camera calibration and nonlinear distortion correction
Recent progress of images taken by non-metric digital cameras encourages amateurs to utilize it for 3D measurements, but also introduces the difficulties of calibration. The ideal camera projection
Camera Calibration with Distortion Models and Accuracy Evaluation
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.
When Should We Consider Lens Distortion in Camera Calibration
An approximate upper envelope for the 2D prediction error is derived, which is a function of a few factors including the number of calibration points, the observation error of 2D image Points, the radial lens distortion coefficient, the image size and resolution.
Correcting non-linear lens distortion in cameras without using a model
To improve the lens distortion rectification, a method without using a model is proposed that is more sensitive to local deformations and allows the image to be corrected in accordance with its distortion.
