In the novel method we propose for determining extrinsic parameters for active stereovision, we first map the relationship between rotational and yaw angles based on least squares fitting, then optimize the rotational axis between two cameras using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. Extrinsic parameters are then easily derived for active stereovision based on the mapping model without complex recalibration. The results of experiments confirmed our proposed method’s feasibility.
