Title: Method and system for camera autocalibration

Abstract: A method for calibrating a projective camera is provided. The method includes acquiring information by detecting at least one object on a substantially flat ground plane within a field of view. A projective camera calibration is performed. A measurement uncertainty is considered to yield a plurality of camera parameters from the projective camera calibration.
