AbstractThis paper introduces a new method for the calibration of a range camera based on active triangulation. The technique is based on model derived from the geometry of the synchronized scanner. From known positions of a calibration bar, a logistic equation is fitted with values of spot positions read from a linear position detector at a number of angular positions of a scanning mirror. Furthermore, with an approximate form of the general equations describing the geometry, a series of design guidelines are derived to help a designer conduct a preliminary study of a particular range camera. Experimental results demonstrating the technique are found to compare favourably with theoretical predictions.
