Low Cost LiDAR

Low Cost LiDAR
A shortcoming of a single sensor camera is lack of depth perception. Two objects, at different depths may appear at the same distance in a 2D image. One solution is to add LiDAR to the setup. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) has found use in applications from autonomous vehicles to robot vacuum cleaners. LiDARs widespread […]

Computer Vision – Correcting Image Distortion

Computer Vision Camera Calibration
In a perfect world… well, we don’t live in a perfect world. Errors will always creep in. Fortunately, the OpenCV software library has built-in routines for correcting these errors. In this post, we take a look at 2 types of distortion and how to correct for them. Camera/Lens Distortion Cameras and lenses have intrinsic distortion. […]

Intel RealSense 3D Depth Camera SDK Setup for C#

We’re developing a custom computer vision client application to measure the square footage of product as it moves along the production line. The Intel camera produces a 3D point cloud of objects in its field of view which can be used to calculate distance, shape, and size. Intel provides an SDK for their camera but […]
