Module: Calibration

Detects a chessboard calibration grid on the image, and returns calibration points where 4 chessboard squares meet.

Name Type Description
inImage Image Input image
inRoi Region* Range of pixels to be processed
inBoardSize Size Number of checkerboard squares in X and Y dimensions.
inFastApproximate Bool Fast filter execution, but result is approximate.
outImageGrid AnnotatedPoint2DArray Detected grid


Camera calibration, image to world coordinates transformations.


Make sure that the whole calibration grid is visible in the image. Otherwise, it will not be detected because the detection algorithm requires a few pixels wide quiet zone around the chessboard. Pay attention to the number of columns and rows, as providing misleading data may make the algorithm work incorrectly or not work at all.


DetectCalibrationGrid_Chessboard executed with inBoardSize = {10,7}
