  • Simulation of Plenoptic Cameras


    In order to create ground truth data for algorithms working on plenoptic camera data, we built a model of a reconfigurable plenoptic camera for Blender. Contrary to other simulations, our model does not heavily simplify the optical system, but contains an objective as well as a microlens array and therefore shows correct image degradation effects.

  • Multi Camera Calibration


    Since we often face the problem of calibrating setups containing multiple cameras with different properties, we built an easy-to-use calibration tool based on the detection of ChArUco boards, a combination of traditional checkerboards and ArUco markers. These markers allow the calibration boards to be partly occluded and accordingly the pattern can also be recognized if it is only partly located within a camera's field of view.

    The tool as well as instructions on the usage can be found in this GitLab repository and its Wiki.

  • Batch File Renamer


    When dealing with a large number of files, e.g. images captured with our light field rig, the renaming process for adjusting the filenames according to the requirements of some MatLab or Github toolbox can be time-consuming. To simplify this process, we built a small tool which uses a tag/delimiter system to analyze and rename files.
