Digital fringe projection (DFP) concepts are used for non-contact form dimension of 3D pictures. within the quickly increasing box of 3D high-speed imaging, the call for for DFP maintains to develop end result of the technology’s quick pace, flexibility, cost effective, and excessive accuracy.
High-Speed 3D Imaging with electronic Fringe Projection Techniques discusses the new release of electronic fringe with electronic video projection units, masking quite a few middle technical points. The publication starts off by means of developing the theoretical foundations of fringe trend research, reviewing a variety of 3D imaging ideas whereas highlighting the benefits of DFP. the writer then:
- Describes the diversities among electronic mild processing (DLP), lcd (LCD), and liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS)
- Explains easy methods to unwrap section maps temporally and spatially
- Shows the best way to generate fringe styles with video projectors
- Demonstrates tips on how to convert section to coordinates via process calibrations
- Provides a close instance of a built-from-scratch 3D imaging system
Incorporating worthy insights received in the course of the author’s 15+ years of 3D imaging examine, High-Speed 3D Imaging with electronic Fringe Projection Techniques illuminates the pathway to development in high-speed 3D optical imaging utilizing DFP.
