cv2.solvePnp axis flip with rotation

asked 2013-01-22 18:45:07 -0500

Hi all,

I'm having an issue using the cv2.solvePnP function.

I am using the function to estimate the pose of my camera by recognising the position of markers on my ceiling, that I can uniquely identify. I can do this successfully but there seems to a quirk in the code where I rotate the camera 90 degrees and my axis flip, x becomes y and y becomes x and the z direction also reverses direction. The angle shown about the z axis seems to remain correct and the coordinates are fine only the x and y have changed.

It seems to be a trigonometry problem but has anyone else had the same issue?

Thanks for the assistance

Yes I can confirm having the same problem using the iterative solvePnP approach on a set (about 30 on a flat marker) of coplanar points. The flip is always the same so not some random error produced by outliers.

Did you ever manage to fix it?
