VIRoom - Low Cost Synchronised Multicamera System and its Self-Calibration

T. Svoboda, H. Hug and L. Van Gool
Pattern Recognition, 24th DAGM Symposium
Zurich (Switzerland), September 2002


This paper presents a multicamera Visual Room (ViRoom). It is constructed from low-cost digital cameras and standard computers running on Linux. Software based synchronized image capture is introduced. A fully automatic self-calibration method for multiple cameras and without any known calibration object is proposed and veri ed by 3D reconstruction experiments. This handy calibration allows an easy recon guration of the setup. Aside from the computers which are usually already available, such a synchronized multicamera setup with five or six cameras costs less than 1000 USD.
