Abstract

This study was to investigate the accuracy of calibrating exterior points with interior points using a frame with the same structure as Peak frame. Two cameras were used. Some points of the frame were used as control points to calibrate others using the DLT method. When we calibrated exterior points with interior points, the minimal and maximal errors were 0.171 cm and 1.797 cm respectively in the horizontal direction (X), 0.213 cm and 4.856 cm in the horizontal direction (Y), 0.103 cm and 1.608 cm in the vertical direction (Z). When we calibrated the interior points with exterior points, almost all errors were less than 1cm. It was concluded that to get the most accurate 3D reconstruction of human movement, it is necessary to make sure that the space formed by control points contains the objects to be calibrated.
