AbstractAdvances in the 3D sensing of dynamics and unstructured environments require the development of intelligent systems, algorithms, and methods to replace or at least minimize the human intervention to the 3D acquisition process. From the user point of view, most existing 3D acquisition systems still require static techniques that can be considered archaic when compared to current 2D still cameras and video. For dynamically uncontrolled environments, the dynamics of the 3D system is becoming very important. Space applications provide an initial impetus to reach this objective, for uncontrolled and harsh environments. This paper will summarize the work that the National Research Council of Canada has pursued in the development of sensing, dynamic tracking, and intelligent acquisition systems for space applications.
