A Method for Improving the Accuracy of Standard Stereo Photogrammetry When Using Small Subtended Angles 2005-01-0751

In stereo photogrammetry, the accuracy of calculating the location of a point in space, decreases as the angle between the two cameras decreases. For vehicle crash testing, the need for accurate 3D data conflicts with the need for flexible positioning of the cameras, to enable unobstructed views of the targets inside the vehicle throughout the impact event. This paper discusses a method for increasing the quantity and quality of film analysis data when small subtended angles are used. The method uses the 3D information developed through triangulation of two cameras as input to a single camera analysis.
