Abstract

See full text

A method of dynamically calibrating a given camera relative to a reference camera of a vehicle includes identifying an overlapping region in an image frame provided by the given camera and an image frame provided by the reference camera and selecting at least a portion of an object in the overlapped region of the reference image frame. Expected pixel positions of the selected object portion in the given image frame is determined based on the location of the selected object portion in the reference image frame, and pixel positions of the selected object portion are located as detected in the given image frame. An alignment of the given camera is determined based on a comparison of the pixel positions of the selected object portion in the given image frame to the expected pixel positions of the selected object portion in the given image frame.
