How to draft a faster calibration method for kinect camera? It takes 3 hours now to complete a calibration. I want to reduce this time. May I request assistance from someone?

What software are you using to calibrate it? In our experience these sensors work fine out of the box. If you can describe what you're setup is, what software you've used and describe in detail what you've tried then we'll be able to assist you.

Hey @PeterBlackerThe3rd, The current one uses a checkerbox to capture calibration points for each camera. There are 4 cameras in total. So overall 4 times the effort to calibrate one camera. I would like to use matlab to draft a new calibration algorithm that would calibrate all of them at once

Try reducing the number of calibration samples. Your code should probably discard all frames where the checkerboard pose is too close to a frame you have already seen.
