Abstract

We present a method for synthesizing triangular intensity fringes as a way to solve the problems caused by projector/camera gamma nonlinearity in triangular-pattern phase-shifting profilometry. The fringe generation technique consists of projecting and acquiring a temporal sequence of strictly binary color patterns (code gray), whose (adequately weighted) average leads to triangular fringe patterns with the required number of bits, which allows a reliable three-dimensional profile reconstruction using these methods. Validation experiments are presented.
