Automatic camera calibration has remained a hard topic in computer vision since its inception due to its reliance on the image correspondence problem. This problem becomes even more pronounced when calibrating a depth image with a color image due to a lack of simple correspondences between the two modalities. In this work, we develop a completely automatic, very fast, online algorithm that demonstrates how a consumer-grade depth camera can be calibrated with a color camera with minimal user interaction.
