Camera calibration just got even easier now. The pose calibration algorithm mentioned here is available as web-service.
This means that calibration is no longer restricted to a Linux PC – you can also calibrate cameras attached to Windows/ OSX and even mobile phones.
Furthermore you will not have to calibrate at all if your device is already known to the service.
The underlying algorithm ensures that the obtained calibrations are reliable and thus can be shared between devices of the same series.
Aggregating calibrations while providing on-the-fly calibrations for unknown devices form the calibDB web-service.
In the future we will make our REST API public so you can transparently retrieve calibrations for use with your computer vision algorithms.
This will make them accessible to a variety of devices – without you having to worry about the calibration data.
