In this work, a method to infer 3D dimensions of flat objects from a single image is presented. The idea is based on the computation of position of a reference object lying in space. A sheet of A4 paper is used as the reference object and the camera is calibrated using the four corners of the paper. Once the position of reference paper is known, further measurements can be taken on the plane in which it lies. No distortion correction model has been implemented yet. This method has been tested on various three dimensional scenarios and it has been found that the accuracy of measurements inferred lie within a tolerance of 25 mm. © 2013 IEEE.
