Merging Color Data of Basler 2D Cameras with Basler blaze Depth Data
Document number: AW001665
This application note tells you how to join a Basler 2D color camera with a Basler blaze ToF camera in order to merge the color data of the 2D camera with the depth data of the blaze, a process also known as data fusion. The addition of the high-resolution color data will make evaluating point clouds much easier and allow you to better recognize fine structures in the resulting images, e.g., bar codes.
The document covers the following topics:
- Use cases that may benefit from data fusion
- Required hardware components, including selection criteria
- Required software components, including download links
- Calibration of the joint camera system
- Data fusion process
A section about related literature is also included if more in-depth information is required.
