Abstract

See full text

A method of dynamically ascertaining the alignment of a vehicular camera. The method involves acquiring a sequence of images provided by the camera whilst the vehicle is in motion. For each range of steering angles, the method (i) selects a plurality of feature points in the images, (ii) tracks a motion trajectory for each selected feature point, and (iii) determines a vanishing point in the image plane based on the tracked motion trajectories. The method determines a vanishing line in the image plane based on a locus of these vanishing points and determines the alignment of the camera based on the position of a central vanishing point (corresponding to the zero degree angle) and the vanishing line.
