2.6. What is calibration? Why do you need calibration?#

Calibration is the process of correcting (calculating correction coefficients) to accurately align the results of data and object recognition obtained from multiple different sensors.

Calibration can be classified into the following two types:

  1. Intrinsic parameter calibration for the camera.

  2. Extrinsic parameter calibration between the camera and LiDAR.

For more information about calibration, please refer to the GitHub calibration tool’s repository.
