Wheel Odometer and How it Helps Calibration of Accelerometer

Wheel odometry is a method used to measure the distance traveled by a vehicle by tracking the rotations of its wheels. This can be done through various methods such as using encoders, sensors, or by measuring the speed of the wheels using an OBD (on-board diagnostics) sensor. One of the main applications of wheel odometry…

Camera Calibration: Tips and Techniques

Camera calibration is the process of determining the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of a camera. Intrinsic parameters are properties of the camera itself, such as its focal length and principal point, while extrinsic parameters describe the position and orientation of the camera in the world. Accurate calibration is important for tasks such as 3D reconstruction,…
