Paper Abstract

Robust range estimation is one of the most important tasks in mobile robotics. This paper presents a new optical arrangement for utilizing the previously known 'depth from defocus' principle. The arrangement makes it possible to apply standard video lenses and camera modules for making a compact range camera system. Real-time processing is made possible with a single-board DSP card.
