Gyroscope is playing a key role in helping estimate camera rotation
during mobile video capture.
The fusion of gyroscope and visual measurements needs the knowledge
of camera projection parameters, the gyroscope bias and the relative
orientation between gyroscope and camera.
Moreover, the timestamps of gyroscope and video frames are usually
not well synchronized.
In this paper, we propose an online method that estimates all the
necessary parameters while capturing videos.
Our contributions are
The proposed method is able to accurately estimate the needed parameters
online with all kinds of camera motion, and can be embedded in gyro-aided
applications such as video stabilization and feature tracking.
- simultaneous online camera self-calibration and camera-gyroscope
calibration based on an implicit extended Kalman filter, and
- generalization of coplanarity constraint of camera rotation
in a rolling shutter camera model for cellphones.
