Paper Abstract

Conventional ray-space acquisition system required very precise mechanisms to control the small movement of cameras or objects. Most of them adopted camera with a gantry or a turntable. Although they are good to acquire the ray-space of small objects, it is not suitable for ray-space acquisition of very large structures, such as a building, a tower, etc. This paper proposes a new ray-space acquisition system which consists of a camera and a 3D position and orientation sensor. It is not only a compact, easy-to-handle system, but also free from a limitation of size or shape in principle. It can obtain any ray-space data as far as the camera is located within the coverage of the 3D sensor. This paper describes our system and its specifications. Experimental results are also presented.
