Abstract

An analytical method to calibrate a camera’s extrinsic parameters and effective focal lengths is presented. We used a single image with four coplanar control lines. Unique solutions of the camera’s extrinsic parameters and the two effective focal lengths are derived linearly and analytically. If the effective focal lengths are known, unique solutions of the extrinsic parameters can be derived more easily. Our method can easily be implemented and has better precision than the analogous method by use of control points. The results of simulated experiments are presented.
