This project aims to use wide-angle fisheye cameras to significantly reduce the required number of cameras for building vehicle surrounding monitoring system. To overcome the fisheye lens distortion, we conducted camera calibration to obtain the accurate rectified view. We also integrated depth images to adjust image projection model to remove ghost effect and distortion when combining images from multiple cameras. Given the high-quality perspective corrected images, we designed an assistive driving system to better visualize vehicles and obstacles on the road in third-person viewpoints. This work was presented at Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV’14).
