Turning mobile phones into 3D scanners

This project develop a system which allows users to build interactively 3D models of real-world environments by means of mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers. Regarding the repid progress in mobile technologies, this methodology bears tremendous potential by offering unprecedented interactivity and mobility. In particular, the feedback, provided to the user in the course of reconstruction, can assist his movements in order to construct a 3D model with the…
