Using the DLP Pico 2.0 kit for structured light applications

Posted: 07 Apr 2010 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:structured light? light modes? Pico 2.0 kit?

The term "structured light" generally refers to the process of projecting a known pattern of pixels onto a scene or object, usually using a projector, laser scanner or laser interference-based stripe generating system. When combined with a synchronized camera, a structured light projector can enable many interesting applications, including: highly accurate 3D surface scanning, dynamic scene illumination, distortion correction, numerous types of advanced human/machine interfaces, and many more new and exciting applications.

Since the mid-1990s, when low cost/high quality digital projectors first became widely available, the area of structured light and the more general category of projector/camera applications, have been hotbeds of university and industry research. DLP projectors long have been the tool of choice for structured light projection, due to unmatched pixel sharpness, contrast and other critical figures of merit for projector/camera systems.

This application note provides the information necessary to take advantage of these new structured light modes in your application.
