BACKGROUND: In this paper, we propose a non-linear calibration method for hand-eye system equipped with a camera undergoing radial distortion as the rigid endoscope. Whereas classic methods propose either a separated estimation of the camera intrinsics and the hand-eye transform or a mixed non-linear estimation of both hand-eye and camera intrinsics assuming a pin-hole model, the proposed approach enables a simultaneous refinement of the hand-eye and the camera parameters including the distortion factor with only three frames of the calibrated pattern. METHODS: Our approach relies on three steps: (i) linear initial estimates of hand-eye and radial distortion with minimum number of frames: one single image to estimate the radial distortion and three frames to estimate the initial hand-eye transform, (ii) we propose to express the camera extrinsic with respect to hand-eye and world-grid transforms and (iii) we run bundle adjustment on the reprojection error with respect to the distortion parameters, the camera intrinsics and the hand-eye transform. RESULTS: Our method is quantitatively compared with state-of-the-art linear and non-linear methods. We show that our method provides a 3D reconstruction error of approximately 5% of the size of the 3D shape. CONCLUSIONS: Our experimental results show the effectiveness of simultaneously estimating hand-eye and distortion parameters for 3D reconstruction. Copyright © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
