The Institute of Robotics and Industrial Informatics (IRI), a joint CSIC-UPC centre and a María de Maeztu unit of excellence, has participated in the design of a technological system to calibrate fish-eye cameras for use in vehicles, and the development of a software module that will be used to assemble calibration stations for these cameras, in collaboration with the company FICOSA ADAS.


 

In recent years, with the main objectives of improving safety, reducing risks and running more efficient vehicles, cameras and sensors have gradually been introduced in the automotive industry. The design and development of this new calibration method provides a safer, more efficient and more comfortable driving experience, as it incorporates the estimation of parameters associated with the optomechanics of the camera. This pioneering solution enables the development of robust driving assistance systems in adverse climate conditions that correct and reduce distortions in the images, which provides a better representation of the environment for the driver.
