This article provides a targetless extrinsic calibration method between camera and low-resolution 3D LiDAR. We carried out real-world experiments on a multi-sensor platform containing a Velodyne VLP-16 LiDAR and a camera. Ground-truth extrinsic matrix is generated by a state-of-the-art target-based method. Regarding the calibration error, the rotation and translation RMSE of our method are 0.59┬░ and 3cm respectively. Codes are avaible at https://github.com/gitouni/Targetless-LiDAR-camera-calibration.
