New generation of 3D sensing technology
Artec Group 3D scanning technology enables fast and accurate acquisition of the object surface (depth) using a method of structured light.
The data is acquired by projecting a special light pattern, the grid, onto the scene objects at a parallax angle. Grid distortion produced by the geometry of objects is used to calculate the exact 3D coordinates of each point. These points form the basis for the triangulated surface that can be further translated into any of the common formats. A texture camera that is synchronized with a wide-field-of-view 3D sensor simultaneously captures both shape and texture of the object surface.
With this system, qualitative 3D models can be acquired in snap-shot or video modes.
As of today, the company has filed 4 patent applications in the United States and 2 in Russia.
The secret behind Artec Group technology is the combination of its novel surface reconstruction algorithms and the proprietary hardware that enables accurate and real-time 3D scanning of objects with arbitrary topology.
Devices incorporating Artec technology may be easily integrated into complex 3D systems for capturing objects of specific types. Due to its high-speed and accurate performance, 3D scanning technology may be applied in handheld and mobile solutions.
