In this paper, an intrinsic parameter of camera from a single image is formulated. Compared to other techniques which use two or three orthogonal planes, parallelograms, rectangles, conic circles and balls, the proposed technique is easy to use and flexible. Calculation of the focal length using a single image is the main objective of this research work. A stick is employed as the calibration object to formulate the equations in order to compute the focal length. The arrangement of the calibration object to acquire the images adds more accuracy in computing the focal length of the camera. The length of the calibration object is the major cue in computing the focal length. A novel approach using polynomial regression is attempted in formulating the cubic polynomials based on the length of the calibration object. The results are tabulated and further used in formulating equation to compute the focal length of the camera. Experimental results are tabulated to show the accuracy of the proposed approach.
