A Rapid Auto-Caliberation Method in Projector-Camera System
A precise, fast, and fully automatic calibration method is proposed to address the shortcomings in currently used large-scale interactive camera-projector systems. These shortcomings include a small number of calibration points used in manual calibration, large errors, huge time consumption, and lack of professional quality operations. The proposed method applies mechanical wavelength switching in the projected image to capture multi-regional vertices. The co-linearity of each point in the projected images is calculated to determine the actual location of the interactive points in the projected image. The point-by-point computation adopted in the method promotes the automatic elimination of uncorrectable systematic errors in large-scale optical devices. The automatic error elimination not only increases the accuracy of the interactive system and reduces the complexity of system installation, but also increases the flexibility of the interactive system.
