Evaluation of Vehicular Camera Performance through ISO-based Image Quality Quantification
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2008.16.1.art00045  Published OnlineJanuary 2008

Images obtained from vehicular cameras are being increasingly used when driving a car due to their safety effect. Yet, the quality of this kind of image is an important factor to catch all possible information accurately, meaning that the camera performance needs to be considered and measured. Accordingly, this study evaluates the performance of a vehicular rear-view camera through quantifying the image quality based on several objective criteria from the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). In addition, various experimental environments are defined considering the conditions under which a rear-view camera may need to operate. The process for evaluating the performance of a rear-view camera is composed of five objective criteria: noise test, resolution test, OECF (opto-electronic conversion function) test, color characterization test, and pincushion and barrel distortion tests. The proposed image quality quantification method then expresses the results of each test as a single value, allowing easy evaluation. In experiments, the performance evaluation results are analyzed and compared with those for a regular digital camera.
