C++ Question

How to properly define arguments to use in triangulatePoints (opencv)?

I try to use triangulatePoints from opencv but I think I do something wrong (I read one of the question about triangulatePoints on stackoverflow but not everything I understand). Assume that I have one point coords - pt1 and pt2 that correspond to coordinates of one point in left and right camera. Pt1 and pt2 is cv::Point.

So I have:

cv::Mat cam0(3, 4, CV_64F, k_data1) //k_data1 is [R|t] 3x4 matrix for left camera
cv::Mat cam1(3, 4, CV_64F, k_data2) //k_data2 is [R|t] 3x4 matrix for right camera
cv::Point pt1; //for left camera
cv::Point pt2 //for right camera

I also define

cv::Mat pnt3D(1, 1, CV_64FC4).

And my question is how to properly define this two points (cv::Point)?

I have tried to do this:

cv::Mat_<cv::Point> cam0pnts;<cv::Point>(0) = pt1;
cv::Mat_<cv::Point> cam1pnts;<cv::Point>(0) = pt2;

But app throws some exceptions, so maybe I do something wrong.


Ok, with some help from @Optimus 1072 I corrected some lines of code and I get something like this:

double pCam0[16], pCam1[16];

cv::Point pt1 = m_history.getPoint(0);
cv::Point pt2 = m_history.getPoint(1);
m_cam1.GetOpenglProjectionMatrix(pCam0, 640, 480);
m_cam2.GetOpenglProjectionMatrix(pCam1, 640, 480);
cv::Mat cam0(3, 4, CV_64F, pCam0);
cv::Mat cam1(3, 4, CV_64F, pCam1);

vector<cv::Point2f> pt1Vec;
vector<cv::Point2f> pt2Vec;

cv::Mat pnt3D(1,1, CV_64FC4);

cv::triangulatePoints(cam0, cam1, pt1Vec, pt2Vec, pnt3D);

But still I get an exception:

...opencv\opencv-2.4.0\opencv\modules\calib3d\src\triangulate.cpp:75: error: (-209) Number of proj points coordinates must be == 2

Finally this works:

cv::Mat pointsMat1(2, 1, CV_64F);
cv::Mat pointsMat2(2, 1, CV_64F);

int size0 = m_history.getHistorySize();

for(int i = 0; i < size0; i++)
  cv::Point pt1 = m_history.getOriginalPoint(0, i);
  cv::Point pt2 = m_history.getOriginalPoint(1, i);<double>(0,0) = pt1.x;<double>(1,0) = pt1.y;<double>(0,0) = pt2.x;<double>(1,0) = pt2.y;

  cv::Mat pnts3D(4, 1, CV_64F);

  cv::triangulatePoints(m_projectionMat1, m_projectionMat2, pointsMat1, pointsMat2, pnts3D);
