Paper Abstract

This paper describes a scheme to capture a wide-view image using a camera setup with uncalibrated cameras. The setup is such that the optical axes are pointed in divergent directions. The direction of view of the resulting image can be chosen freely in any direction between these two optical axes. The scheme uses eight-parameter perspective transformations to warp the images, the parameters of which are obtained by using a relative orientation algorithm. The focal length and scale factor of the two image are estimated by using Powell's multi-dimensional optimization technique. Experiments on real images show the accuracy of the scheme.
