Camera Calibration for Roundabout Traffic Scenes (11-2763)
In this paper, we present an approach to estimate camera intrinsic and extrinsic parameters for roundabout traffic scenes. Unlike many previous works on camera calibration for roadway scenes based on the parallel line method, our work addresses camera calibration for roundabout scenes by using a circle. The proposed method can estimate tilt angle, focal length, and camera height by matching the ellipse equation extracted from an image with the perspective-transformed equation of the corresponding real-world circle. The pan angle is not required in our method and only one image is needed for camera calibration. The method is validated with real-world roundabout traffic scenes and the results are comparable to those from the parallel line method in terms of accuracy.
