Doing the Dot Target Dance
ASU Mastcam-Z Calibration Engineer Andy Winhold (left) adjusts a board patterned with dots while MSSS Operations Engineer Jason Van Beek (right) checks the image quality. This particular test, called geometric calibration, required that the board be moved more than 100 times, to different positions and distances, as the cameras (on the table at the right of the image) snapped away.
