Paper Abstract

We propose a geometrical approach for virtual camera rectification on uncalibrated single-lens stereovision using a biprism. This system is also called a virtual stereovision system, as the image captured can be divided into two which are equivalent to two images captured using two cameras with different perspectives. The proposed method is divided into two parts. The first part is to compute the projection transformation matrix of two virtual cameras based on a unique geometrical ray sketching, which can accurately recover the extrinsic parameters, and the second part is to compute the rectification transformation matrix, which is applied on the images captured using the system. As the geometrical analysis eliminates the complex calibration process and rectification reduces the correspondence searching to one-dimensional, this method provides a simple stereo matching technique for this system. Experimental results are presented to show the effectiveness of the approach.
