Calibration

View this topic in
Calibration is a comparison between measurements – one of known magnitude or correctness made or set with one device and another measurement made in as similar a way as possible with a second device. The device with the known or assigned correctness is called the standard. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Extrinsic Calibration from Per-Sensor Egomotion

    We show how to recover the 6-DOF transform between two sensors mounted rigidly on a moving body, a form of extrinsic calibration useful for data fusion. Our algorithm takes noisy, per-sensor incremental egomotion observations (i.e., incremental poses) as input and produces as output an estimate of the maximum- likelihood 6-DOF calibration relating the sensors and accompanying uncertainty. The 6-DOF transformation sought can be represented effectively as a unit dual quaternion with 8 parameters subject to two constraints. Noise is explicitly modeled (via the Lie algebra), yielding a constrained Fisher Information Matrix and Cramer- Rao Lower Bound. The result is an analysis of motion degeneracy and a singularity-free optimization procedure. The method requires only that the sensors travel together along a motion path that is non-degenerate. It does not require that the sensors be synchronized, have overlapping fields of view, or observe common features. It does not require construction of a global reference frame or solving SLAM. In practice, from hand-held motion of RGB-D cameras, the method recovered inter-camera calibrations accurate to within ∼0.014m and ∼0.022 radians (about 1 cm and 1 degree).

  • Automatic Calibration of Multiple Coplanar Sensors

    This paper describes an algorithm for recovering the rigid 3-DOF transformation (offset and rotation) between pairs of sensors mounted rigidly in a common plane on a mobile robot. The algorithm requires only a set of sensor observations made as the robot moves along a suitable path. Our method does not require synchronized sensors; nor does it require complete metrical reconstruction of the environment or the sensor path. We show that incremental pose measurements alone are sufficient to recover sensor calibration through nonlinear least squares estimation. We use the Fisher Information Matrix to compute a Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) for the resulting calibration. Applying the algorithm in practice requires a non-degenerate motion path, a principled procedure for estimating per-sensor pose displacements and their covariances, a way to temporally resample asynchronous sensor data, and a way to assess the quality of the recovered calibration.We give constructive methods for each step. We demonstrate and validate the end-to-end calibration procedure for both simulated and real LIDAR and inertial data, achieving CRLBs, and corresponding calibrations, accurate to millimeters and milliradians. Source code is available from http://rvsn.csail.mit.edu/calibration.

  • Reducing Calibration Time For Brain-Computer Interfaces: A Clustering Approach

    Up to now even subjects that are experts in the use of machine learning based BCI systems still have to undergo a calibration session of about 20-30 min. From this data their (movement) intentions are so far infered. We now propose a new paradigm that allows to completely omit such calibration and instead transfer knowledge from prior sessions. To achieve this goal we first define normalized CSP features and distances in-between. Second, we derive prototypical features across sessions: (a) by clustering or (b) by feature concatenationmethods. Finally, we construct a classifier based on these individualized prototypes and show that, indeed, classifiers can be successfully transferred to a new session for a number of subjects.

  • Array Shape Calibration Using Sources in Unknown LocationsPart I: FarField Sources

    This paper deals with source localization using a two-dimensional array of sensors whose locations are not known precisely. If only a single source is observed, uncertainties in sensor location increase errors in source bearing and range by and range by an amount which is independent of signal-to-noise ratio and which can easily dominate overall localization accuracy. Major performance gains could therefore result from successful calibration of array geometry. The paper derives Cramer-Rao bounds on calibration and source location accuracies achievable with far-field sources whose bearings are not initially known. The sources are assumed to radiate Gaussian noise and to be spectrally disjoint of each other. When the location of one sensor and the direction to a second sensor is known, three noncollinear sources are sufficient to calibrate sensor positions with errors which decrease to zero as calibrating source strength or time-bandwidth products tend to infinity. The sole exception to this statement is a nominally linear array for which such calibration is not possible. When one sensor location is known but no directional reference is available, three non-collinear sources can determine array shape, but there remains a residual error in angular orientation which is irremovable by the calibration procedure. When no sensor locations are known a priori, one adds to the residual error in rotation a translational component. In the far field, the latter should be unimportant. In addition to the asymptotic results, Cramer-Rao bounds are computed for finite signal-to- noise ratios and observation times. One finds that calibration permits significant reductions in localization errors for parameter values well within the practical range.
