Abstract

We present a method for calibration of low-cost depth sensors such as the Microsoft Kinect. We show this method is effective at correcting the structured sensor error using a compact parametric solution, that uses only a small fraction of the number of parameters used in many existing approaches. Additionally we provide this calibration as an open-source implementation, with limited required external dependencies. We demonstrate our approach can optimise directly for a geometric depth and radial distortion calibration function in minutes on modern hardware.
