Abstract : This book describes a variety of recent research into time-of-flight imaging. Time-of-flight cameras are used to estimate 3D scene-structure directly, in a way that complements traditional multiple-view reconstruction methods. The first two chapters of the book explain the underlying measurement principle, and examine the associated sources of error and ambiguity. Chapters three and four are concerned with the geometric calibration of time-of-flight cameras, particularly when used in combination with ordinary colour cameras. The final chapter shows how to use time-of-flight data in conjunction with traditional stereo matching techniques. The five chapters, together, describe a complete depth and colour 3D reconstruction pipeline. This book will be useful to new researchers in the field of depth imaging, as well as to those who are working on systems that combine colour and time-of-flight cameras.
