Camera Calibration#

Next to face recognition, a camera calibration example is also included.

You'll need a checkerboard for this to work. Print this: chessboard

Then run

pixi run calibrate

To make a picture for calibration press SPACE Do this approximately 10 times with the chessboard in view of the camera

After that press ESC which will start the calibration.

When the calibration is done, the camera will be used again to find the distance to the checkerboard.
