AbstractActive 3D imaging systems use artificial illumination in order to capture and record digital representations of objects. The use of artificial illumination allows the acquisition of dense and accurate range images of textureless objects that are difficult to acquire using passive vision systems. An active 3D imaging system can be based on different measurement principles that include time-of-flight, triangulation and interferometry. While time-of-flight and interferometry systems are briefly discussed, an in-depth description of triangulation-based systems is provided. The characterization of triangulation-based systems is discussed using both an error propagation framework and experimental protocols.
