We propose an automated method to recover the full calibration parameters between a 3D rangesensor and a monocular camera system. Our method is not only accurate and fully automated, but also relies on a simple calibration target consisting of a single circle. This allows the algorithm to be suitable for applications requiring in-situ calibration. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm on acamera-lidar system and show results on 3D mapping tasks.
