Paper Abstract

Canesta, Inc. has developed a CMOS based technique that yields 3D information using only one 2D array sensor and is commercializing this 3D camera. The camera is composed of a light source (illumination system) and a CMOS based 2D array camera. The illumination system can generate 4 types of illumination fields of view with IEC eye classification class 1 or class 1M by simply switching diffusers. In this paper, the design of the illumination system is described and the performance results are presented.
