Abstract

We propose a high-speed projection system that is able to project statistical speckle patterns at a rate of 500Hz. Its purpose is to generate structured light for a real-time photogrammetry stereo vision setup. As conventional digital light projector (DLP) projection setups are limited in their maximum projection rate to 250Hz for gray-value patterns, stripe projection systems are usually applied for real-time three-dimensional (3D) measurements. However, these techniques can only be used on steady surfaces as phase unwrapping has to be done. In contrast, the proposed setup is able to measure the shape of multiple spatially separated objects at once. We compare the speckle setup with a system using a DLP projector and with other fast 3D shape measurement setups, like the widely used stripe projection methods, qualitatively and quantitatively.
