M. Callieri, P. Cignoni, M. Dellepiane, R. Scopigno "Pushing Time-of-Flight scanners to the limit", VAST 2009 13.10.2009

The paper describes a pipeline for 3D scanning acquisition and processing that allow to exploit the utmost precision and quality out of ToF scanners. The proposed approach capitalize on the knowledge of the distribution of the noise to apply sophisticated fairing techniques for cleaning up the data. Leveraging on the very dense sampling of this kind of scanners the possibility to attain high accuracy is shown. A practical application of the proposed approach for the scanning of a large (5mt) statue with millimetric precision is presented.
