Description
Problem 1. (4 points) Consider a line l in the image, given by parameters (a; b; c), in the image coordinate system. We know that the corresponding 3D line casting this image lies in a plane. Derive the equation of this plane (in the camera coordinate system). You may assume that the intrinsic calibration matrix, K, is given.
Problem 2. (11 points) Suppose that we have a righthanded camera coordinate system (X_{c}; Y_{c}; Z_{c}) associated with its origin at the lens center (or the pinhole), as in the examples discussed in class. Suppose that the imaging plane is at a distance of 50 millimeters from the lens center, the imaging surface (a planar patch) is 1200 1200 pixels, each pixel is :04 millimeters in each dimension, and that the principal ray intersects the imaging surface in the center. Let the image (or retinal) coordinate system have its origin at the upperleft corner of the imaging sensor, the x axis along the toprow, and the yaxis points downward at an acute angle of 88 degrees to the x axis). Assume that the x axis in the image plane is parallel to the x axis in the normalized image plane.

For these conditions, derive the intrinsic matrix K, which helps map a point, speci ed in the normalized image coordinate frame to the image coordinates (x; y; 1)^{T} expressed in pixel units (ignore the issue of rounding o pixel coordinates to integers).

Now suppose that the camera is placed in a world coordinate system (O_{w}; X_{w}; Y_{w}; Z_{w}) such that O_{c} is at location (4; 3; 2) in the world coordinate system (all distances expressed in meters); X_{c} is parallel to X_{w} and then the camera is rotated by 15 degrees about the X_{c} axis in a clockwise direction (visualize as a person taking a picture with camera pointing down slightly). Compute the nal projection matrix, M.
• Consider a set of parallel lines in the horizontal plane (i.e. the X_{w} Z_{w} plane). Find the vanishing point, in the image coordinates, of this set of lines in terms of the direction of the lines for the above con guration.
