Measurement accuracy and dependence on external influences of the iPhone X TrueDepth sensor

Paper Abstract

Depth sensors for three-dimensional object acquisition are widely used and available in many different sizes and weight classes. The measuring method used and the measuring accuracy depend on the task to be performed. The integration of depth sensors in mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones is largely new. The TrueDepth system of the iPhone X shows which measurement accuracies can be achieved with these systems and which areas of application can be achieved in addition to consumer fun. The investigations show that the TrueDepth system of the iPhone X can be used for measuring tasks with accuracies in the millimeter range.
