Motion Contrast 3D Scanning

Bill Gutelius at Active Imaging came across this interesting research effort. Using motion contrast 3D scanning this group at Northwestern has solved the problem of the sun “swamping” the scanner.

“In order for a 3-D camera to be useful, it has to be something you can use in everyday, normal environments,” Cossairt said. “Outdoors is a part of that, and that’s something the Kinect cannot do, but our Motion Contrast 3-D scanner can.”
