Overview

The velo2cam_calibration software implements a state-of-the-art automatic calibration algorithm for pair of sensors composed of LiDAR and camera devices in any possible combination, as described in this paper:

Automatic Extrinsic Calibration Method for LiDAR and Camera Sensor Setups

Setup

This software is provided as a ROS package. To install:

  1. Clone the repository into your catkin_ws/src/ folder.

  2. Install run dependencies: sudo apt-get install ros-<distro>-opencv-apps

  3. Build your workspace as usual.

Usage

See the HOWTO guide for detailed instructions on how to use this software.

To test the algorithm in a virtual environment, you can launch any of the calibration scenarios included in our Gazebo validation suite.

Calibration target

The following picture shows a possible embodiment of the proposed calibration target used by this algorithm and its corresponding dimensional drawing.
