Calibrating Setups with a Single-Point Laser Range Finder and a Camera (with Thanh Nguyen)

In this work, we propose two accurate calibration methods for determining the position and direction of the laser range finder with respect to the camera. Notably, we can determine the full calibration, even without observing the laser range finder observation point in the camera image. We evaluate both methods on synthetic and real data demonstrating their efficiency and good behavior under noise.
