3 Absrac The objecve of hs projec s o develop a laserbased rangulaon 3D scanner on a PDA (Personal Dgal Asssan). The sysem, conssng of a PDA wh a camera and a laser beam, mus be auonomous. Calbraon of he camera, laser lne deecon and rangulaon has been mplemened as a sandalone applcaon. 1. Inroducon 3D nspecon, 3D reconsrucon and n general 3D magng are ho opcs whch more and more are appearng n he ndusry. There s a clear need for buldng 3D models of he vsble surface for a wde varey of objecs n shape, sze and ype of maeral. Applcaons requre nspecng, documenng, reproducng, or smply provdng he capably o remoely observe he represenaon of a real objec under any seleced vewpon. Owng o hese facs, 3D scannng s currenly n a fas developmen sage. Ths projec deals o a handheld range sensor, whch s a useful ool n many suaons. Snce s manoeuvrable, s easy o selec he area o be measured whou he consran on moon mposed by a ranslaon or roaon sysem. In addon, s easy o oren he sensor relave o he surface o ge he opmal coverage (samplng) or he opmal condons for measuremen qualy. From desgn o mplemenaon, several seps mus be performed n order o acheve he fnal goal, a 3D scanner. These seps nvolve a wde range of heory, such as deecon of feaures, eppolar geomery, rangulaon or reconsrucon from 2D mages. Theory whch n par has been suded whn he maser lecures. Manly for he possbly o apply and mprove our knowledge over hs feld and also because s an ambous approach we seleced hs projec. As far as he repor srucure s concerned, chaper one sars by nroducng he concep of a 3D scanner, s funconales and s classfcaon. Second chaper presens he heorecal background, how he sysem calbraon s performed, how o deec a laser srpe n he mage, he rangulaon prncples n order o compue 3D coordnaes from 2D projecons, and how o locae he camera durng he scannng process (o generae a sngle cloud of 3D pons by regserng he paral clouds of pons). The modellng, smulaon and mplemenaon of he sysem s descrbed n secon hree Wha s a 3D scanner? A 3D scanner s a devce ha analyzes a realworld objec or envronmen o collec daa on s shape and possbly s appearance (.e. colour or exure). The colleced daa can hen be used o consruc hree dmensonal models useful for a wde varey of applcaons. These devces are used exensvely by he eneranmen ndusry n he producon of moves and vdeo games. Oher common applcaons of hs echnology nclude ndusral desgn, reverse engneerng and prooypng, compuer vson and documenaon of culural arefacs. Many dfferen echnologes can be used o buld hese 3D scannng devces; each echnology has s own lmaons, advanages and coss. The range of objecs ha can be dgzed s sll lmed: for example opcal echnologes encouner many dffcules wh shny, mrrorng or ransparen objecs
4 1.2. 3D Scanner s classfcaon There are manly hree echnologes n whch 3D scanners can be classfed: conac 3D scanners, nonconac acve 3D scanners and nonconac passve 3D scanners. Brefly, a conac scanner (Fgure 1.1) probes he subjec hrough physcal ouchng as for example a CMM (Coordnae Measurng Machne). Ths knd of scanners presens several dsadvanages such as he possbly of damagng or modfyng delcae or valuable objecs durng he scannng process or he slow processng o oban he 3D model. In fac, he movng arm has o ouch all he area of he objec o be scanned, hence akes sgnfcanly more me compared o oher scannng mehods. Ths projec s enclosed n he second group of 3D scanners: nonconac acve scanners (Fgure 1.2). Acve scanners em some knd of radaon or lgh and deec s reflecon n order o probe an objec or envronmen. Possble ypes of emssons use lgh sources, ulrasound or Xray. Fnally, he las group s nonconac passve scanners (Fgure 1.3) whch do no em any knd of radaon by hemselves, bu nsead rely on deecng refleced amben radaon. Mos scanners of hs ype deec vsble lgh because s a readly avalable amben radaon. Oher ypes of radaon, such as nfrared could also be used. Fgure D conac scanner from Faro enerprse whch can scan objecs unl 2.4m wh a resoluon of +/18µm. Fgure D nonconac acve scanner from Mnola enerprse. The sandard verson can scan objecs from.6 o 1.m wh a resoluon of.5mm. Fgure D nonconac passve scanner from RSI GmbH whch apples sereovson o oban he 3D pons. 2. Theorecal background 3D laser scanners are oday's mos accurae nonconac acve measurng ools. However, here are wo mporan ssues o be consdered. The former concerns he denfcaon of he geomercal parameers of he sysem, snce hey allow he equaons o be denfed and solved n order o provde he reconsruced 3D pons. The process o oban hese values s known as calbraon, and s descrbed n Secon 2.5. The second problem concerns he laser srpe deecon. I s worh regardng ha he geomerc fgures ha are reconsruced are pons, and pons are zerodmensonal, ha s, hey do no have volume or surface. I s evden ha he sze of a laser spo s, by no means, an nfnely small pon. Insead, s an elecromagnec radaon ha can be focused down o abou 2µm usng he curren lens manufacurng echnology. Hence, seems very sensve o provde a means of deecng a sngle pon as much represenave of he laser spo as possble. The lgh energy dsrbuon of he srpe follows a Gaussan  4 
5 paern, hence s assumed ha a good canddae for hs represenave pon s he lgh peak of he Gaussan paern. For hs reason, he echnques or algorhms for obanng he pxel of he mage ha bes quanfy hs pon are called numercal peak deecors. The need for a projecve geomerybased calbraon procedure s clear, and several auhors have conrbuons o hs end. Wh hs approach, s no necessary o use accurae mechancal posonng pars for denfyng he laser plane/lne equaon, and hs feaure s very neresng when he calbraon n hazardous envronmens, such as underwaer applcaons, s needed D merology Merology s he scence of measuremen, embracng boh expermen and heorecal deermnaons a any level of uncerany n any feld of Scence and Technology. In parcular, 3D merology s a very neresng echnology and s beng appled n dverse felds such as ndusry, 3D medcal magng, human body measuremen or robocs. One of he approaches o 3D sensng by nonconac devces s he wdely spread acve 3D scanner devces. They are called acve, because hey change he lghng of he scene by projecng srucured lgh on. The way hey oban 3D nformaon s by usng a camera for measurng he dspary beween he projeced srucured lgh and he mage of he scene. Among he srucured lgh devces, hs projec s focused o he case of rangulaon based 3D laser scanners. Fgure 2.1 shows a op vew of he basc dagram whch bulds up such sysem. Noe ha here appear mporan conceps and quanes lke base lne, opcal axs, laser axs, angles and wh respec o he vercal, quanfyng he orenaon of he eye and laser, ec. These quanes model he geomerc aspecs of he sysem. Fgure 2.1. Basc 3D laser scanner. The eye appearng n ha square s obvously replaced by a camera n real applcaons. Noe ha, jus lke n he case of he human vson sysem, he poson and orenaon of he eye/camera s mporan for shape/deph sensng, as well as he orenaon and poson of he laser projecon. In addon, a laser srpe or spo can be narrowly focused even a grea dsances, hence provdng even more dreconaly han he fovea vson
6 2.2. The prncple of rangulaon Ths secon nroduces he prncple of rangulaon focusng s use n he laser sl scannng. Generally hs prncple s accompaned by he called correspondence problem, whch s sll unsolved n many cases. The ypcal suaon n whch such prncple s appled s shown n fgure 2.2 where a pon P n 3D space s seen by wo dfferen cameras. If he spaal relaonshp beween boh cameras s accuraely known, he poson of P can be found by s wo projecons ( p ' and p '') on he correspondng mage planes, compung he nersecon of lnes P p' and P p' '. Fgure 2.2. Trangulaon prncple usng wo cameras. The spaal relaonshp beween boh cameras can be easly found by applyng a sandard camera calbraon procedure o be chosen among he mulple exsng ones, dependng on how dsored are he capured mages. However, he bgges problem s how can P be unquely denfed n boh mage planes?.e. how sure can be saed ha boh p ' and p '' correspond o he projecon of P? Ths problem s wdely known as he correspondence problem, whch s very dffcul o solve robusly n mulple camera sysems, unless hghly defned corners are maged. Besdes, one of he echnques ha works very well for denfyng pons n 3D space s he use of Acve Vson. The erm acve means ha some well known lgh paern (ypcally laser or coded/uncoded srucured lgh) n dfferen geomeres (pons, planes, crosses, parallel bars, ec.) s projeced ono he scene, so an llumnaed pon n he 3D space s well seen by boh cameras, and hence, he 3D coordnaes of P are easly compued by rangulaon. In addon, f he lgh source geomery, ha s, s pose and scannng movemen, s well known, one of he cameras can be replaced by he lgh source and 3D nformaon can also be obaned by rangulaon. Ths procedure s wdely used by commercal and research prooype range fnders. Fgure 2.3 shows how camera 2 n fgure 2.2 has been replaced by a sweepng laser lgh source. Usng hs echnque he camera model has o be compued usng a calbraon procedure, and he lne or plane laser equaon mus be known n order o compue s nersecon wh he lne P p'
7 Fgure 2.3. Laser scanner sysem wh scannng lgh source Laser peak deecon The accuracy of a 3D reconsrucon usng laser scanners s sgnfcanly consraned by he deecon of he laser srpe n he mage. Snce he energy paern of such a srpe corresponds o a Gaussan profle, makes sense o deec he pon of maxmum lgh nensy (or peak) by compung he zerocrossng pon of he frs dervave of such Gaussan profle. However, because nose s presen n every physcal process, such as elecronc mage formaon, s no sensve o perform he dervave of he mage of he srpe n almos any suaon, unless a prevous flerng sage s done. Consderng ha srpe scannng s an nherenly rowparallel process, every row of a gven mage mus be processed ndependenly n order o compue s correspondng peak poson n he row. The opcal properes of he surface sgnfcanly deermne he performance of he laser scanner. The opmal surface ype for scannng purposes s a oally lamberan surface wh a hgh reflecon ndex. Translucd surfaces are ofen presen n our everyday lfe (ceran ypes of plasc, anmal ssue, slcon, resns, ceran rocks or mnerals, ec.). Fgure 2.5 shows how a ray of lgh behaves when mpnges such knd of surface. In a ranslucd surface, lgh reflecs as n a lamberan surface, bu goes hrough he maeral unl a ceran deph. The hgher he lgh power, he deeper he lgh peneraes nsde he maeral. In addon, he lgh scaers nsde he maeral, so ha a camera lookng a "sees" laser reflecons sourcng from nsde. Fgure 2.4 (rgh) shows a laser srpe refleced on a lamberan surface, whle fgure 2.4 (lef) shows how he reflecon on a ranslucd surface s seen by he camera. As s shown, a laser srpe mpngng on a ranslucd surface nduces a lo of undesred lgh peaks where hey are no expeced o be. In addon, f he lgh power s lowered, he nose due o he dfferen sources becomes more and more sgnfcan and hence, he reconsrucon qualy degrades

Three nose sources have been found o nfluence he hreedmensonal measuremen of cameralaser based 3D scanners: elecrcal nose, quansaon nose and speckle nose. The speckle s drecly relaed o he naure of laser lgh, whle he oher wo nose sources are nheren o he mage sensor. Speckle s due o he reduced wavelengh of lgh compared o he surface roughness and he monochromacy of laser lgh and nfluences he 3D measuremen. These hree nose sources are combned ogeher and make he observer see he consrucve and desrucve nerferences whn he laser srpe. Fgure 2.6. Laser srpe of a ranslucd (lef) and a lamberan (rgh) surface
9 2.4. New mehod for obanng pon correspondences Any se of four nonalgned pons A, B, C, D on he plane can be joned par wse by sx dsnc lnes. Ths fgure s called he Complee Quadrangle and exhbs several useful properes n compuer vson applcaons. Sx of he pons defned by hs fgure are used n order o generae 3D pons for calbraon and her correspondences on he mage plane, n oher words, from hs complee quadrangle, he ransformaon marx whch maps he laser srpe pons on he mage plane o he world coordnaes ( W T I ) s calculaed Pons on he upper and lower edges Fgure 2.7 shows how he four lnes defned by pon F and pons A, P A, B, and G respecvely, confgures a pencl of lnes. Hence s sraghforward o oban her crossrao, provded ha pon P A s known. However, P A s an unknown world 3D pon, wh only he lne ha conans beng known, ha s, only pons A, B, and G are known. Neverheless, from he fgure can be seen ha pons A, P A, B and G are all known. Snce he geomerc relaon beween pons A o G and pons A o G s projecve, he crossrao can be compued wh pons A o G and s value can be used for compung he coordnaes of pon P A. The same procedure can be adoped beween pons D o G and D o G. By repeang he process for dfferen posons and/or orenaons of he laser srpe, can be seen ha a se of correspondences P A, P A and P B, P B can be esablshed wh hgh accuracy. Fgure 2.7. The crossrao and he complee quadrangle
10 Pons on he laser srpe The esmaon of he 4x3 ransformaon W T I, whch maps pons on he mage plane ( I P) o pons on he laser plane ( W P), s performed from pon o pon correspondences. In subsecon 2.4.1, a mehod for obanng he nersecon pons of he laser plane wh he upper and lower lnes of he calbraon arge (P A, P B ) was exposed. However, only wo pons defne he laser srpe for each deph, as shown n fgure 2.8. I s reasonable o hnk ha he more pons per srpe he beer he parameer esmaon of W T I wll be. Lookng back o fgure 2.7, s clear ha he crossrao of pons F, A, D and an arbrary 2D pon P L beween A and D can be obaned. Snce pons F, A and D are known, he prevously compued crossrao can be used for calculang he coordnaes of he 3D pon P L correspondng o P L. Ths process s depced n fgure 2.9, where he pons on he lne A D are called P L. I s obvous ha a pencl of lnes L T can be defned beween pon G and pons P L, and ha hese lnes defne a se of nersecon pons P R on he lne B C. Now, for each of he lnes of he pencl L T, he nersecon wh he laser srpe P S can be obaned, and hence, he crossrao beween pon G, P R, P S and P L can be calculaed. Fnally, snce he 3D pons G, P R and P L are known, he value of he crossrao can be used n order o oban he se of 3D pons P S layng on he laser srpe. Fgure 2.8. The laser plane defned by upper and lower pons
11 Fgure 2.9. Pon generaon Calbraon mehod usng a complee quadrangle Once he pon correspondences have been denfed for each srpe poson, he parameers of he 2D o 3D mappng mus be esmaed. Equaon 2.1 shows he relaonshp beween pons on he mage plane I [u; v; 1] T wh 3D pons W [sx; sy; sz; s] T on he laser plane. sx sy = sz s u v 1 W T I (Eq. 2.1) As sad n 2.4, W T I s he ransformaon marx whch maps pons on he mage plane ( I P) o pons on he laser plane ( W P). Bu how can be compued. Chen and Kak [Chen87] borrowed hs resul and used a homography for modellng he geomerc relaonshp beween he laser plane and he mage plane. However, a homography relaes 2D pons on a plane o 2D pons on a second plane and does no solve he process of mappng from 2D pons o 3D pons. Wh hs am, Chen demonsraed ha a 3D coordnae sysem could be added o he laser plane, such ha pons on he laser plane expand naurally o 3D coordnaes by addng a hrd componen equal o zero o he 2D coordnaes
12 {W} World (reference) coordnae sysem {I} Image coordnae sysem {L} Laser coordnae sysem {L 2 } Bdmensonal coordnae sysem Fgure 2.1. Geomerc scheme of Chen & Kak's mehod. Where {W} s he world or reference coordnae sysem, {I} s he mage coordnae sysem, wh uns expressed n pxels, and {L} s he laser coordnae sysem. {L 2 } s a bdmensonal coordnae sysem, where he x and y concde wh he x and y axs of {L}. As shown n equaon 2.2, he geomery of he whole sysem can be modelled by a 4x3 ransformaon W T I wh 11 degrees of freedom. Ths ransformaon allows he pons on he laser plane o be mapped o 3D coordnaes, wh respec o {W}. x y W L = TL TL z w u v = 1 1 e e 1 e e u = v 1 u v = 1 u L W 23 W H 2 I TL 21 e22 e23 TI v e32 e e (Eq. 2.2) Obvously, he parameers 11 o 34 should be esmaed as precsely as possble, n order o maxmse he accuracy of he reconsrucon. Accordng o equaon 2.2, he expressons for sx, sy, sz and s are obaned and shown n equaon 2.3. sx = sy = sz = s = u + u + u + u v + v + v + v (Eq. 2.3) Arrangng he erms and groupng, a homogeneous sysem of hree equaons wh 12 unknowns ( 11 o 43 ) s obaned, as shown n equaon u + 12 u + u + 32 v v + v u X u Y u Z v X v Y v Z X = Y = Z = (Eq. 2.4)
13 I can be seen ha one sngle pon correspondence conrbues wh 3 equaons and 12 unknowns, wh only her rao s beng sgnfcan. Hence, a leas 4 noncollnear pons are needed n order o fnd he 12 parameers. However, due o he presence of nose n he measuremen, s reasonable o ransform he problem no a leassquaresype parameer esmaon problem, by usng more han four nosy pon correspondences. Rewrng equaon 2.4 n a marx form, equaon 2.5 s obaned, whch s he expresson of he parameer esmaon problem, ha can be solved by compung he vecor θ ha mnmses some cos funcon of he marx equaon θ = θ = 11, 12, 13, 21,..., 43. A, where [ ] T A good esmaon usng TLS echnques can be found by compung he egenvecor correspondng o he smalles egenvalue of marx A T A. u v 1 u v 1 u v 1 u u u X Y Z v v v X Y Z X Y Z = (Eq. 2.5) Wh he parameer esmaon for each srpe poson, a se of W T I s obaned. In he case of lnear scannng, a lne can be fed o he se of parameers correspondng o each marx componen Camera localzaon (selfreferencng) To buld a 3D model s necessary o regser all he 3D clouds of pons acqured durng all he acquson process. The am of he regsraon process conss on ranslae he local reference sysem of each acquson sep o he world reference sysem. Ths sep s que easy when he moon of he camera beween each sep s knowed. As s presened n [Maabosh7] here are several echnques o perform hs regsraon process bu alhough he scanned objec says over he scannng surface whou any movemen, he camera moon s free. Hence our sysem s a handheld scanner and he camera movemen beween one acquson sep and he nex one s unknown. [Héber] presens a selfreferenced handheld range sensor soluon whch consss on a rnocular sensor confguraon as s shown n fgure 2.11, where he laser projecor projecs a consan srucured lgh ono he scanned objec. These projecons are markers whch are acqured ogeher wh he scanned objec by wo cameras whch make he rangulaon o oban he 3D coordnaes. Snce he srucured lgh projeced (a leas hree pons) s known wh reference o he rao
14 beween each pon, s possble o compue he camera moon by regserng he srucured lgh acquson from one acquson o he nex or prevous one. Fgure Trnocular sensor confguraon: Two cameras and a crosshar lgh projecor. The fxed pon projecor s no depced. Ths soluon gve us an dea abou how can we relae one acquson o he nex one n order o know he camera moon. However, our sysem s formed by one camera and one laser projecor. In [Wagner7] s presened ARToolKPlus, a successor o he popular ARToolK pose rackng lbrary. Ths lbrary has been opmzed and exended for he usage on moble devces such as smarphones, PDAs and Ulra Moble PCs (UMPCs). The echnque whch s used n hs paper consss on deec a specfc marker by paern recognon and owng o he camera calbraon, he camera can be selfreferenced by knowng he poson of he marker as can be seen n fgure Fgure Basc workflow of an AR applcaon usng fducal marker rackng. From hs echnques a selfreferencng camera localzaon sysem has been performed, whch s presened n Secon

Once he decson of acheve hs projec was aken, he frs hng o do was collec all he necessary maeral such as PDA, camera and laser beam. However, hs ask ook few weeks because he maeral was scaer beween dfferen members and places of he IUT laboraory. Hence, we sared o fulfl he bographcal research n order o hnk on how o mplemen he 3D scanner, whle, on he same me, he necessay maeral was beng recolleced. The nal Gann dagram whch organse he dfferen seps o perform durng he me lne s depced n fgure 3.1. However, several asks were rescheduled, due o he reformulaon of he projec. Ths reformulaon of he projec was done durng early December afer experencng several echncal problems, such as, mpossbly o fnd a camera for he PDA or he ncompables beween he programmng ools and he operave sysem of he PDA.

16 The bblographcal research began specally cenred n calbraon echnques, 3D laser scanners, laser peak deecon, he prncple of rangulaon, ec. Manly, he heorecal background presened n he prevous chaper, necessary conceps o undersand before mplemenng anyhng. The hess of Dr. Fores New Mehods for TrangulaonBased Shape Acquson usng Laser Scanners [Fores4] was a good sarng pon because nvolves several of hs heorecal conceps and accordng o Dr. Fof we mus read Acquson of mages, he nal seup Once he bblographcal research was done several algorhms such as quadrangle calbraon, laser peak deecon or marker localzaon were mplemened on Malab, because Malab allows he user o develop que fas a prooype o check f he echnque whch s beng used works or no. A hs momen, he resuls were obanng as expeced and n order o connue was necessary o receve he maeral, a leas he laser beam. The PDA s camera a hs momen was no ye avalable and was decded o connue by acqurng pcures from a moble phone, whose camera s resoluon and characerscs are more or less equal o a PDA s camera.

The acqured mage of he quadrangle (Fgure 3.3.) s presened o he user n order o denfy he quadrangle s corners (A, B, C, D ) presened n Secon (Fgure 3.4).
