Picking Robot Camera Calibration System Based on OpenCV


Article Preview

Aim at the effect of the radial distortion and tangential distortion, the camera calibration principle, geometric model and complex equation solution were studied, in order to reduce the artificial participation in proofreading and error correction, then the camera’s software precise calibration module based on OpenCV was developed. The results showed that the system was quickly speed, high precision and could satisfy the requirements of robot vision navigation system and built the foundation for the next step research.
