Precision Manufactured

Checkerboard marker targets function like traditional checkerboards, but have the added benefit of unique identification of squares. This allows stereo calibration from partial views (just the central identification markers need to be visible), allowing the user to capture calibration images from the sensor periphery. This is beneficially especially for distortion parameter estimation. See our Knowledge Base for details.

Note that checkerboard detection with unique markers is implemented in e.g. OpenCV's  cv::findChessboardCornersSB (only version 4.3 and later).

All of our calibration targets are made from aluminium/LDPE composite sheets which offers excellent flatness and stiffness, while being lightweight. Additionally, the composite material offers good thermal stability and corrosion resistance.  

The patterns are transferred to the composite material using a specialised precision direct UV (Ultra-Violet) printing process resulting in a durable matte finish. Through extensive testing, we have found this process to be ideal for machine vision applications, where both accuracy, good optical performance and physical robustness are of utmost importance.
