Miniature 3D TOF Camera for Real-Time Imaging
In the past, measuring the scene in all three dimensions has been either very expensive, slow or extremely computationally intensive. The latest progresses in the field of microtechnologies enable the breakthrough for time-of-flight (TOF) based distance-measuring devices. This paper describes the basic principle of the TOF measurements and a first specific implementation in a state-of-the-art 3D-camera ”SwissRanger SR-3000” [T. Oggier et al., 2005]. Acquired image sequences will be presented as well.
