About Us


Digital image correlation, calibration, calibration parameters.


This article deals with factors, which influence accuracy of measured data obtained by method of digital image correlation, specifically by the system Q-450 from the company Dantec Dynamics. The attention is mainly focused on calibration of cameras and in detail it is remitted on its affect the accuracy of the results.
