Abstract

Machine vision has been made easier by the development of computer systems capable of processing information at high speeds and by inexpensive camera-computer systems. A Camera-Computer system called SIVEDI was developed based on the shape from focusing (SFF) and shape from defocusing (SFD) techniques. The SIVEDI system has as entries the images captured by the camera, the number of steps of the focusing mechanism, and user specifications. The focusing mechanism used is the internal one of the camera and a computer-camera interface was designed to control it. An equation is introduced to obtain the measure of relative defocusing among many images. A 3D image is produced as the result of the system. SIVEDI consist of a number of modules, each one implementing a step in the system model. The modules are independent of each other and could be easily modified to improve the system. As SIVEDI was developed in a MATLAB environment it can be used in any computer with this software installed on it. These characteristics allow users to access intermediate results and to control the system internal parameters. Results show that the 3D image reconstruction has an acceptable quality.
