Tuesday, 2. December 2014
76 companies, research and education institutions applied for the twelfth Innovation Award “Ideas? Welcome!” from Göttingen county
LaVision won the third place with its development of a one-camera system for stereoscopic deformation analysis of solids in the category "Applicants with more than 20 employees."
For stereoscopic imaging usually a partly complicated and/ or rather expensive two-camera system is used. LaVision’s camera projector system now offers the possibility to work with an inexpensive compact system in which one camera is replaced by a projector. In this case, projecting a known pattern allows the reconstruction of the three-dimensional surface of the sample. The spatial position of individual points can be calculated by detection and triangulation of this pattern in the camera image.
