Handbook of 3D Machine Vision: Optical Metrology and Imaging (Series in Optics and Optoelectronics)


With the continued free up of 3D video clips and the emergence of 3D TVs, 3D imaging applied sciences have penetrated our day-by-day lives. but identifying from the various 3D imaginative and prescient equipment to be had will be problematic for scientists and engineers, specially and not using a entire source to refer to. Filling this hole, Handbook of 3D desktop imaginative and prescient: Optical Metrology and Imaging offers an in depth, in-depth examine the most well-liked 3D imaging innovations. It makes a speciality of noninvasive, noncontact optical equipment (optical metrology and imaging).

The guide starts with the well-studied approach to stereo imaginative and prescient and explains how random speckle styles or space-time various styles considerably enhance the result of stereo imaginative and prescient. It then discusses stereo particle picture velocimetry as a tremendous experimental skill in fluid dynamics, the powerful and easy-to-implement structured-light process for laptop technology functions, electronic holography for appearing micro- to nanoscale measurements, and grating, interferometry, and fringe projection thoughts for accurately measuring dynamically deformable common gadgets.

The ebook is going directly to describe thoughts that don't require triangulation to get better a 3D form, together with time-of-flight recommendations and uniaxial 3D form dimension, in addition to 3D dimension innovations that aren't limited to floor trap, resembling 3D ultrasound, optical coherence tomography, and 3D endoscopy. The ebook additionally explores how novel 3D imaging thoughts are being utilized within the promising box of biometrics―which may possibly end up necessary to safeguard and public safety.

Written by way of key gamers within the box and inventors of significant imaging applied sciences, this authoritative, cutting-edge instruction manual is helping you realize the middle of 3D imaging know-how and select the correct 3D imaging approach in your wishes. for every method, the booklet offers its mathematical foundations, summarizes its winning purposes, and discusses its boundaries.
