A satellite navigation system (like GPS) allows an user to determine its own position everywhere and anytime on Earth. The process of calculating the position is relatively simple (use of trilateration). The main issue is to obtain and decode the transmitted information and to estimate accurately the Time Of Arrival (TOA) of the signals as they lie below the thermal noise floor. A technique...

Time-of-flight imaging of indoor scenes with scattering compensation

Mure-Dubois, James ; Hügli, Heinz

In: Proceedings. Conference Optical 3-D Measurement Techniques, 2007, p. 1-8

3D time-of-flight cameras may suffer from false depth readings caused by light scattering. In order to reduce such scattering artifacts, a scattering compensation procedure is proposed. Assuming a space invariant point spread function as a model for the scattering leads to a solution in a form of a deconvolution scheme.The improvemen tbrought by scattering compensation, as well as the...
