Abstract Nowadays lasers in the measurement industry are widely used. The accuracy of optical rangefinders, which detect a laser line directly from a taken frame, lies in precise laser line detection. By using a lens with a smaller focal length, a barrel distortion can occur. In this paper we would like to introduce an effective method for barrel distortion correction. The algorithm also includes a super-sampling method to prevent line discontinuities especially on image borders, where the influence of distortion effect is significant. The algorithm description also includes substantial speed-up of the whole process by using a correction matrix. A correction matrix is estimated only once for a specific frame dimension and user's parameters. Then the camera correction matrix is used in the mapping process. The paper also includes a time comparison between using a different super-sampling quality and the benefit of using the correction matrix.
