Machine vision editorial digest guides users to 3-D imaging applications

thumbnailimage3d

A collection of articles originally published in Vision Systems Design magazine guides engineers and system integrators with technical examples of applications inwhich 3-D imaging systems have been successfully designed and installed. The guide is titled: VSD Editorial Digest: 3-D Imaging for Machine Vision and is available for download on the Vision Systems Design website.

Understanding 3-D imaging is important because, by extracting 3-D information from an image, engineers can accomplish many tasks, including robot grasping, navigation, and traffic analysis. To accomplish these goals, it’s important to understand the human visual system, 3-D machine vision, and 3-D vision methods and applications, including single-camera methods, stereo-camera methods, 2.5-D methods, laser-based 3-D imaging, projected striped light imaging, and time of flight imaging.

This Editorial Digest helps engineers understand how 3-D systems have been developed for specific applications, with articles on:

- Laser triangulation to measure food products
- 3-D displays for controlling unmanned vehicles
- 3-D systems that verify pallet packing
- Systems that help build 3-D models
