Stitching image using SIFT and Homography

This Matlab tutorial I use SIFT, RANSAC, and homography to find corresponding points between two images. Here I have used vlfeat to find SIFT features. Full code is available at my GitHub repository Major steps are: 0.Adding vlfeat to your Matlab workspace:

  1.Detect key points and extract descriptors. In the image below you can see some SIFT key …

Lucas–Kanade method optical flow with MATLAB

In this tutorial, I will show you how to estimate optical flow based on Lucas–Kanade method.  This project has the following scripts: Optical_flow_estimation, myFlow, myWarp, computeColor, flowToColor. The myFlow does the main job, it gets two images and a window length (patch length) and a threshold for accepting the optical flow.  In the following, you see the myFlow.  You can uncomment figure function calls …

6DOF pose estimation with Aruco marker and ROS

ArUco is a simple yet great library for augmented reality applications. In this tutorial, I’m gonna show you how to track ArUco marker and estimate their 6DOF pose with ROS. For this tutorial, you only need a USB camera. You need to calibrate your camera before first. If you don’ know how to that just follow my other tutorial …

Calibrating a Monocular Camera with ROS

ROS use OpenCV for camera calibration but the format that it stores the data is different than OpenCV. Also, you need to know where to place the camera calibration files so ROS can find it and publish it. 1.First, you need to install usb cam package from ROS and uvcdynctrl to disable autofocus:

2.Open a terminal and run roscore: …
