access icon free Accurate 3D measurement using optical depth information

A novel three-dimensional measurement technique is proposed. The methodology consists in mapping from the screen coordinates reported by the optical camera to the real world, and integrating distance gradients from the beginning to the end point, while also minimising the error through fitting pixel locations to a smooth curve. The results demonstrate accuracy of less than half a centimetre using Microsoft Kinect II.
