A laser stereo triangulation device is described which permits easier observation of objects with specular surfaces. The device's two cameras are first calibrated with the light pattern. The calibration data are used to compute the unique and reversible function to mapping the image sensed by the second camera within the image plane of the first camera. Simple correlation techniques are used to extract the originally projected light pattern from the numerous artifacts. Because of its simplicity, the algorithm can be computed in real time at video rates to produced a clean image representative of the surface geometry. Experiments conducted using a laboratory prototype produce reliable results wih promise for practical applications.
