21 Comparison 2004 vs 2007

22 Our Problem Propose an autonomous data improving and filtering method which lead to more accurate calibration result

23 LRF-Camera System Laser Range Finder Camera

24 Challenge Sensor Model [Kneip, L.; 2009]
Laser range finder sampling an environment discretely Laser data are noisy : Mixed pixel

25 Challenge Laser beams are invisible Autonomous process
Point-Line constrains No ground truth available Autonomous process Autonomously improve and filter the data

26 Proposed method Data improvement : Reduce angular error

27 Proposed method Data filtering: Remove outlier
In case of mixed pixel: may select neighbor point instead In case of moving calibration object: remove data pairs

28 Scope of the research Propose an autonomous laser data improving and filtering method for extrinsic LRF/camera calibration Laser range finder and camera can be placed at arbitrarily position as long as they have a common detection area An environment is suitable for laser range finder and camera so that they can detect the calibration object

29 Work Plan Study the works in the related fields
Develop data improvement method Develop data filtering method Test the proposed method Prepare and engage in a thesis defense

31 Bundle adjustment Conceived in the field of photogrammetry during 1950s and increasingly been used by computer vision researchers during recent years Mature bundle algorithms are comparatively efficient even on very large problems Bundle adjustment boils down to minimizing the re-projection error between the image locations of observed and predicted image points Visual reconstruction attempts to recover a model of a 3D scene from multiple images and also recovers the poses of the cameras that took the images
