create_camera_setup_model — Create a model for a setup of calibrated cameras.
create_camera_setup_model creates a new camera
setup model and returns a handle to it in
The camera setup comprises a fixed number of cameras, which is
NumCameras and cannot be changed once the model
was created. For each camera, the setup stores its internal parameters,
covariances of the internal parameters (optional) and a pose of the
set_camera_setup_param, you can change the coordinate
system in which the cameras are represented: You can either select
a camera and convert all camera poses to be relative to this camera
or you can apply a general coordinate transformation, which moves
the setup's coordinate system into an arbitrary pose. Changing the coordinate
system of the camera setup is particularly useful in cases, where, e.g.,
you want to represent the cameras in the coordinate system of an
object being observed by the cameras. This concept is further
demonstrated in the example below.
The internal parameters and pose of a camera are set or modified by
set_camera_setup_cam_param. Further camera parameters and
general setup parameters can be set by
well. All parameters can be read back by
A camera setup model can be saved into a file by
write_camera_setup_model and read back by
This operator returns a handle. Note that the state of an instance of this handle type may be changed by specific operators even though the handle is used as an input parameter by those operators.
