Precise Upright Adjustment of Panoramic Images

Nobuyuki Kita

Abstract

An equirectangular format is often used when an omnidirectional image taken by a 360c̊amera is expanded into a single image, which is referred to as a panoramic image. If an omnidirectional image is expanded into a panoramic image using the upward direction of the inclined camera, the image may look unstable and “wavy.” It is important to correct the inclination using the zenith direction as a reference; this task is called "upright adjustment." In this paper, we propose a method for upright adjustment by estimating the inclination of a camera in a wavy panoramic image using vertical lines in the environment, e.g., indoors or outdoors near a building. The advantage of the proposed method is that 3D straight lines are detected with high accuracy and high speed directly from a panoramic image without passing through a spherical image. Experimental results of upright adjustment of the wavy panoramic images taken in multiple places show that the proposed method is accurate and can be applied in a wide range of indoor and outdoor scenarios.
