The research aims to develop a device technology and software to recover surface information from a handheld scanner. The idea is to combine pre-existing object analysis technologies with a local device capable of reconstructing an objects shape from data collected by simple (shelf component) electronics as the device is passed over the object in the absence of information from a separate imaging system or device. The idea is to create the necessary technology to include realistic imaging as part of a ‘tri-corder’ like device. All existing similar approaches make use of remotely placed imaging systems to acquire extra information about object shape.
