|20130250066||THREE DIMENSIONAL CAMERA AND PROJECTOR FOR SAME - A 3D imaging apparatus comprising a projector, comprising a laser array comprising a plurality of individual emitters, a mask for providing a structured light pattern, wherein a distance between the laser array and the mask is substantially minimized according to a non-uniformity profile of the plurality of individual emitters and according to a uniformity criterion related to the light intensity distribution across the mask plane, projection optics to image the structured light pattern onto an object, an imaging sensor adapted to capture an image of the object with the structured light pattern projected thereon and a processing unit adapted to process the image to determine range parameters.||09-26-2013|
|20120063672||3D GEOMETRIC MODELING AND MOTION CAPTURE USING BOTH SINGLE AND DUAL IMAGING - A method and apparatus for obtaining an image to determine a three dimensional shape of a stationary or moving object using a bi dimensional coded light pattern having a plurality of distinct identifiable feature types. The coded light pattern is projected on the object such that each of the identifiable feature types appears at most once on predefined sections of distinguishable epipolar lines. An image of the object is captured and the reflected feature types are extracted along with their location on known epipolar lines in the captured image. Displacements of the reflected feature types along their epipolar lines from reference coordinates thereupon determine corresponding three dimensional coordinates in space and thus a 3D mapping or model of the shape of the object at any point in time.||03-15-2012|
