Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new acquisition method and the application of the technology for the acquisition of a person's foot. The sensor is designed to meet the requirements of measuring a variety of feet under various ambient optical conditions that can, in other circumstances, seriously affect the data measurements and reduce the reliability of the system. The most important distinction between this ranging method and other more classical approaches is the high tolerance of the method to external optical perturbations as well as reflections form other sensor heads. This allows its use in conventional 'store' or 'medical offices' that are usually bright places.
