Compact Low-cost Scanner for 3D-Reconstruction of Body Parts with Structured Light Illumination
Besides traditional applications like face and body 3D-measurement e.g. for person recognition or esthetic surgery, there is an increasing demand for high resolution 3D-reconstruction of body parts. This paper describes a low-cost miniaturized 3D reconstruction approach using structured light. By projecting known patterns onto a surface, shape and structure of the surface can be measured and characteristic parameters of deformation can be determined. Existing approaches use large geometries and complex optical components. Here the authors present their system with the size of a cigarette pack and a working distance of only 6cm.
