Computer Vision Problems.

  1. Dec 8, 2009 #1
    I am using 2 webcam to measure the distance and speed of an object. I am considering using triangulation methods but i am facing problems how to find the angle of each webcam to the object? Since we need 2 angle and the distance between 2 webcam to find the distance between webcam and the object.

    I am a beginner on this subject, so anyone can suggest a very beginner book for me?

    If your camera is mounted on something vertical and your object is on a horizontal plane, just pull out a protractor and measure the angle the camera makes with the vertical.

    wiki's a good place to start
