Paper Abstract

In this paper, processing of images of projected structured light is applied to define a 3-D unstructured scene. The structured light, viewed by a stereoscopically located, single video camera, results in an image in which the regional 3-D characteristics of the scene are represented by corresponding distortion of the structure of the projected light. Image points of the structured light can be mapped to the 3-D location of their corresponding scene points. These points can then be processed to yield a planar fit of the region of interest in the scene. An illustrative example is presented. The scene definition capabilities of this method can provide essential input to an autonomous navigation system for an ofd road or planetary exploration vehicle.
