This paper presents a novel least squares calibration approach for fringe projection profilometry. This approach is based on a simple nonlinear function, which is deduced by analyzing the geometry of measurement system and perfectly describes the mapping relationship between the depth map and phase distribution. The calibration is implemented by translating a target plane to a sequence of given positions with known depths, and measuring its phase distributions. Based on least squares estimation, an algorithm with linear computation is deduced to retrieve the related parameters, by which the burden of computational complexity is effectively alleviated. In experiment, a plaster statue is measured to demonstrate the validity of the principle.
