Abstract

Many environments lack enough architectural information to allow an autocalibration based on features extracted from the scene structure. Nevertheless, the observation over time of walking people can generally be used to estimate the vertical vanishing point and the horizon line in the acquired image. However, this information is not enough to allow the calibration of a general camera without presuming excessive simplifications. This paper presents a study on the capabilities and limitations of the mono-camera calibration methods based solely on the knowledge of the vertical vanishing point and the horizon line in the image. The mathematical analysis sets the conditions to assure the feasibility of the mono-camera pedestrian-based autocalibration. In addition, examples of applications are presented and discussed
