3D Scanning with Multiple Depth Sensors



CVSSP, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK


Recent developments in consumer depth cameras have prompted much interest in the use of commodity depth sensors for various computer vision tasks. This paper presents an open-source software framework for the simultaneous capture and control of multiple Prime Sense based depth cameras. The system, based on the OpenNI libraries, is designed primarily for use in scanning static human subjects. A description of the system including both intrinsic and extrinsic calibration parameters is presented. An analysis of the calibration is presented along with an estimate of potential errors.
