VISION-INERTIAL SYSTEM CALIBRATION FOR TRACKING IN AUGMENTED REALITY

Madjid Maidi, Fakhr-Eddine Ababsa, Malik Mallem

Abstract

High accuracy registration between real and virtual environments is crucial in Augmented Reality (AR) systems. However, when a vision/inertial hybrid tracker is used,such accuracy depends mostly on the calibration procedure to determine transformations between the sensors frames. This calibration allows to project all data in a single reference frame. In this paper, we describe a new calibration method for a hybrid tracking system. It consists on rigidly assembling the hybrid tracker to a 6DOF robot in order to simulate the users head motion while tracking targets in AR environment. Our approach exploits the robot positioning to obtain a high accuracy for the tracker calibration. Experimental results and accuracy analyses are presented and demonstrate our approach effectiveness.
