Phase measurement profilometry (PMP) is a well-known technique for making 3D measurements. The technique involves the projection of patterns with a sinusoidally varying spatial intensity. This approach has been used extensively to make highly accurate measurements of static images. The use of structured light to make highly accurate measurements on human subjects is more difficult because of the inherent motion of the subject under test.
This document describes the principal of operation and the capability of SEIKOWAVE technology how it realizes the 3D full body scan and extends to the real-time 3D body scanning. This document also describes about the handheld microscopic 3D scanner developed by SEIKOWAVE.
