The paper, Structured Light 3D Measurement of Reflective Objects Using Multiple DMD Projectors highlights our work on the challenges surrounding structured light 3D imaging of objects with polished surfaces. By using multiple projectors along with a novel noise filtering algorithm we were able to achieve high-quality 3D data even when imaging highly reflective targets.

Structured light 3D imaging has several advantages over other approaches such as passive stereo vision or time-of-flight cameras, and in particular the area scan method used here is fast, accurate, and does not require moving parts to capture a complete image. Improvements to image processing algorithms along with hardware and optical configurations are constantly making this approach more useful in real world applications.

 

Ajile has built expertise in working with structured light applications through development of flexible and powerful tools using DMD technologies. Our high speed controllers and projectors and being used around the world in R&D and industrial applications such as medical imaging, machine vision, telecommunications, metrology and quality assurance, in addition to 3D imaging.
