Paper Abstract

This paper deals with 3-D object reconstruction using a structured light system (SLS). The SLS is composed of a camera and a laser projector that illuminates spots on the scene of interest. The basic problem of such a system is the correspondence problem. If the correct correspondence between the imaged spots and the projected laser rays is found, the 3-D coordinates of the physical points associated with these spots can be calculated. We propose a method that automatically provides SLS configurations (i.e., the relative positions of both camera and laser projector with respect to the object to be analyzed) that allow performing an unambiguous and direct correspondence procedure. Experimental results are presented that show the validity and the effectiveness of the proposed method.
