Auto Camera Calibration Method for Person Tracking Applications
Jones  recently presented a novel calibration procedure that uses a linearized model of the projection of the height of a person to recover the image-plane to local-ground- plane transformation with minimum expert intervention. In this paper we present an addition to the work of Jones , by further reducing the measurements needed to be made manually to de ne the image-plane to ground-plane homography. We also do an analysis of the sensitivity of the recovered transformation to errors in measurements and noise, and point out how to use the method to achieve best calibration results.
