Stereo Camera Calibration

Extract 3-D information from 2-D images

3-D vision is the process of reconstructing a 3-D scene from two or more views of the scene. Using the Computer Vision System Toolbox™, you can:

  • Perform dense 3-D reconstruction using a calibrated stereo pair of cameras.

  • Reconstruct the scene using an uncalibrated stereo pair of cameras, up to unknown scale.

  • Compute a sparse 3-D reconstruction from multiple images, using a single-calibrated camera.

What Is Camera Calibration?

Estimate the parameters of a lens and image sensor of an image or video camera

Stereo Calibration App

Calibrate a stereo camera, which you can then use to recover depth from images.

Depth Estimation From Stereo Video

This example shows how to detect people in video taken with a calibrated stereo camera and determine their distances from the camera.
