The 3D reconstruction of the surface of an object has been studied extensively over the years, mainly due to its applications ranging from industrial product inspection, to robot guidance, and 3D object modeling. The key factor in the acquisition of such 3D information is the principle of range measurement, or in simpler terms, the measurement of depth of an object’s surface relative to the position of a known point or plane in space.

This research concerns the development and implementation of a low-cost multiple stereo 3D acquisition system, for the purpose of modeling a person’s head. The project focuses on the investigation of data fusion algorithms that could exploit the data redundancy from multiple cameras to reduce occlusions and improve depth accuracy. The proposed approach combines passive and active lighting techniques to address the reconstruction of low texture surfaces. Techniques which permit an improvement in reconstruction resolution are also studied in order to obtain a reliable high-resolution 3D reconstruction of the object of interest.
