  6. Real-Time Range Sensing Video Camera for Human/Robot Interfacing

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: T502

    In comparison to stereovision, it is well known that structured-light illumination has distinct advantages including the use of only one camera, being significantly less sensitive to background clutter, and not requiring the target object to have nonambiguous features. But because structured-light illumination requires a scanning process, it is inappropriate for humancomputer interfacing where the ...
