We propose an automatic camera calibration method for a side-rear-view monitoring system in natural driving environments. The proposed method assumes that the camera is always located near the surface of the vehicle so that it always shoots a part of the vehicle. This method utilizes photographed vehicle information because the captured vehicle always appears stationary in the image, regardless of the surrounding environment. The proposed algorithm detects the vehicle from the image and computes the similarity score between the detected vehicle and the previously stored vehicle model. Conventional online calibration methods use additional equipment or operate only in specific driving environments. On the contrary, the proposed method is advantageous because it can automatically calibrate camera-based monitoring systems in any driving environment without using additional equipment. The calibration range of the automatic calibration method was verified through simulations and evaluated both quantitatively and qualitatively through actual driving experiments. View Full-Text
