Object for storing intrinsic fisheye camera parameters


The fisheyeIntrinsics object stores the camera intrinsics for a fisheye camera. See fisheyeParameters for details on other fisheye parameters.




intrinsics = fisheyeIntrinsics(mappingCoeffs,imageSize,distortionCenter) returns a fisheyeIntrinsics object with the specified [a0 a2 a3 a4] polynomial coefficients, image size, and center of distortion. These input arguments are assigned directly to the corresponding properties of the object. See fisheyeParameters for more details.

intrinsics = fisheyeIntrinsics(___,stretchMatrix) additionally specifies a 2-by-2 transformation matrix that describes the alignment between the sensor plane and the image plane. The default value is an identity matrix.

Polynomial coefficients for the projection function described by Scaramuzza's Taylor model, specified as an [a0 a2 a3 a4] vector.

Center of distortion in pixels, specified as a [cx cy] vector.

Transformation from the sensor plane to a pixel in the camera image plane, specified as a 2-by-2 transformation matrix. This misalignment is caused by the lens not being parallel to the sensor and by the digitization process.

Image size, specified as an [mrows ncols] vector.
