This chapter proposes a method for estimating a distortion center to correct the radial distortion that
occurs when capturing images with a wide-angle fish-eye lens. In the field of view (FOV) distortion cor-
rection model, the error of the distortion center and center of the image increases because it does not
estimate the distortion center of a lens separately. This drawback deteriorates the accuracy of distortion
correction. Thus, this chapter proposes a distortion correction method using the FOV model and 2D pat-
terns in order to increase the accuracy of the distortion center estimation of a wide-angle lens. To achieve
this goal, a distortion curve generated from the FOV model is compared with a straight line, thereby
setting the position of the minimum difference between the curve and the straight line as the distortion
center. Through this method, the accuracy of the estimation of the center of the distortion that occurs
owing the error in the alignment of center points of a lens and the imaging sensor can be improved. This
was also verified through experiments.
