To make it it easier to stitch point clouds with minimal overlap, we have reduced and removed point cloud edge artifacts. When using the 3D camera's minimum FOV, or close to the minimum working distance, edge artifacts can introduce noise in the overlapping point cloud regions.
SDK 1.8.1 addresses point cloud stitching applications by removing unwanted edge artifacts.
Estimate camera intrinsics
All Zivid One+ 3D cameras come with a unique, per-camera calibration. The built-in calibration ensures that your camera captures the best possible point clouds. In applications where you want to undistort an image and use existing 2D vision algorithms, the camera intrinsic will eliminate camera calibration needs.
In SDK 1.8.1 we present a new per-frame API function where you can apply a centerpoint compensation to the intrinsics. Use this function to improve 3D to 2D projections where you want to correlate a known 3D point in space with the camera's pixel coordinate.
In this release, the function is available for C++ only, and we decided to keep the new Camera Intrinsics function experimental.
