Abstract
The four-dimensional imager (4DI) system, a real-time threedimensional (3-D) imager, is a laser range data sensing system for making continuous geometric measurements of 3-D surfaces. We concentrate on the objective of improving the resolution and accuracy of this system using a camera-turntable arrangement. A fast and inexpensive method to capture dense range data for 360-deg viewing of an object is provided. After the system calibration procedure and parameter estimation operations, the method to improve the data resolution by object rotation is derived. By oversampling the object surface and then using a 3-D smoothing and resampling operation, the accuracy of the data can be improved while maintaining a given spatial resolution. The method of removing the low credibility data points is also discussed.
