In order to complete the high-precision calibration of the planetary rover navigation camera using limited initial data in-orbit, we proposed a joint adjustment model with additional multiple constraints. Specifically, a base model was first established based on the bundle adjustment model, second-order radial and tangential distortion parameters. Then, combining the constraints of collinearity, coplanarity, known distance and relative pose invariance, a joint adjustment model was constructed to realize the in orbit self-calibration of the navigation camera. Given the problem of directionality in line extraction of the solar panel due to large differences in the gradient amplitude, an adaptive brightness-weighted line extraction method was proposed. Lastly, the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm for nonlinear least squares was used to obtain the optimal results. To verify the proposed method, field experiments and in-orbit experiments were carried out. The results suggested that the proposed method was more accurate than the self-calibration bundle adjustment method, CAHVOR method (a camera model used in machine vision for three-dimensional measurements), and vanishing points method. The average error for the flag of China and the optical solar reflector was only 1 mm and 0.7 mm, respectively. In addition, the proposed method has been implemented in China’s deep space exploration missions.

Determination of calibration parameters is essential for the fusion performance of an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and odometer integrated navigation system. Traditional calibration methods are commonly based on the filter frame, which limits the improvement of the calibration accuracy. This paper proposes a graph-optimisation-based self-calibration method for the IMU/odometer using preintegration theory. Different from existing preintegrations, the complete IMU/odometer preintegration model is derived, which takes into consideration the effects of the scale factor of the odometer, and misalignments in the attitude and position between the IMU and odometer. Then the calibration is implemented by the graph-optimisation method. The KITTI dataset and field experimental tests are carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method. The results illustrate that the proposed method outperforms the filter-based calibration method. Meanwhile, the performance of the proposed IMU/odometer preintegration model is optimal compared with the traditional preintegration models.

Light pen 3D vision coordinate measurement systems are increasingly widely used due to their advantages, such as small size, convenient carrying and wide applicability. The posture of the light pen is an important factor affecting accuracy. The pose domain of the pen needs to be given so that the measurement system has a suitable measurement range to obtain more qualified parameters. The advantage of the self-calibration method is that the entire self-calibration process can be completed at the measurement site without any auxiliary equipment. After the system camera calibration is completed, we take several pictures of the same measurement point with different poses to obtain the conversion matrix of the picture, and then use spherical fitting, the generalized inverse method of least squares, and the principle of position invariance within the pose domain range. The combined stylus tip center self-calibration method calculates the actual position of the light pen probe. The experimental results show that the absolute error is stable below 0.0737 mm and that the relative error is stable below 0.0025 mm. The experimental results verify the effectiveness of the method; the measurement accuracy of the system can meet the basic industrial measurement requirements.

When performing the diffuse optical tomography (DOT) of the breast, the mismatch between the forward model and the experimental conditions will significantly hinder the reconstruction accuracy. Therefore, the reference measurement is commonly used to calibrate the measured data before the reconstruction. However, it is complicated to customize corresponding reference phantoms based on the breast shape and background optical parameters of different subjects in clinical trials. Furthermore, although high-density (HD) DOT configuration has been proven to improve imaging quality, a large number of source-detector (SD) pairs also increase the difficulty of multi-channel correction. To enhance the applicability of the breast DOT, a data self-calibration method based on an HD parallel-plate DOT system is proposed in this paper to replace the conventional relative measurement on a reference phantom. The reference predicted data can be constructed directly from the measurement data with the support of the HD-DOT system, which has nearly a hundred sets of measurements at each SD distance. The proposed scheme has been validated by Monte Carlo (MC) simulation, breast-size phantom experiments, and clinical trials, exhibiting the feasibility in ensuring the quality of the DOT reconstruction while effectively reducing the complexity associated with relative measurements on reference phantoms.

We will study binocular vision for 6-DOF robotic manipulator in conformal geometric algebra approach. We will focus on the case where some information as relative cameras positions, has been lost. In particular, we will use the construction of the manipulator to infer a self calibration method for cameras position based in binocular vision with incomplete information.
