Numerous methods for 3D imaging exist, including single and multi-camera methods, structured light systems and those based on the time of flight principle.

Single camera methods attempt to either fit known object models to the captured imaging, or try to employ a moving camera or moving focal plane. Multi-camera methods, however, attempt to triangulate between camera views. Using a camera and projector, structured light methods triangulate views to build 3D models while time of flight systems measure the time it takes light to travel from the sensor head, onto target objects, and back.

In a free webcast on October 7, Dr. Daniel Lau, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky, will explain these different methods, in terms of both hardware and software, while providing information on which is the most appropriate for a given machine vision or image processing application.

This event is sponsored by Point Grey and Z-LASER.
