The acquisition of images with a fish-eye lens can cause serious image distortion because of the short focal length of the lens. As a result, it is difficult to use the obtained image information. To make use of the effective information in the image, these distorted images must first be corrected into the perspective of projection images in accordance with the human eye’s observation abilities. To solve this problem, this study presents an adaptive classification fitting method for fish-eye image correction. The degree of distortion in the image is represented by the difference value of the distances from the distorted point and undistorted point to the center of the image. The target points selected in the image are classified by the difference value. In the areas classified by different distortion differences, different parameter curves were used for fitting and correction. The algorithm was verified through experiments. The results showed that this method has a substantial correction effect on fish-eye images taken by different fish-eye lenses.
