Paper Abstract

This article presents a new type of 3D color digital imaging system. First, we briefly introduce the current 3D imaging technologies: passive and active sensing. Second, a new type of 3D imaging system is introduced. Using this system, the shape of an object can be digitized and the texture of this object surface can also be gained simultaneously. The emphasis of the paper is put on the description of hardware design and software framework design of the system. The paper also presents the 3D digital image made on a human face as an experimental result. Then, the potential industrial applications such as reverse engineering, digitization of museum artifacts, inspection, biomedical imaging, home shopping, film-making and virtual reality, etc., are described. Finally, we make conclusion and future development on 3D imaging.
