Abstract

A novel approach to extract the depth data of 3D objects in space by using the computational integral imaging reconstruction (CIIR) technique is proposed. With elemental images of 3D objects captured by the CCD camera through a pinhole array, depth-dependent object images can be reconstructed on the output plane by the CIIR technique. Only the images reconstructed on the output planes where 3D objects were located are clearly focused; so the depth data of 3D objects in space can be extracted by discriminating these focused output images from the others by using an image separation technique. A feasibility test of the proposed CIIR-based depth extraction method is carried out, and its results are discussed as well.
