Point Cloud and 3D Image

Three-dimensional image is characterized by three dimensions of data, including width, height and depth. It can be expressed in three forms, i.e. depth map (expressing the distance between the object and the camera in grayscale), geometric model (created in a CAD software) and point cloud (3D scanners collect many points on the surfaces of objects).…

How does Light Influence 3D Scanning?

3D scanning is the process of analyzing a real-world object or scene to collect data on its shape and appearance (such as color, texture). The collected data can be used to construct digital 3D models. 3D scanner is an imaging device that collects 3D data. It is based on different imaging technologies including ToF, structured-light…

3D Sensors’ Applications in Industrial Automation

Nowadays, flexible production becomes more urgent for industrial automation. Since 2D imaging system restricts machine vision applications due to its two-dimensional nature, applications such as bin picking, Inline inspection and dimensional measurement are already moving to 3D imaging. Advanced 3D imaging techniques have been making industrial 3D sensors smaller and smarter to be widely used…
