Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ASSISTED 3D SCANNING
Abstract:
A three-dimensional scanning system includes: a camera configured to capture images; a processor; and memory coupled to the camera and the processor, the memory being configured to store: the images captured by the camera; and instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to: control the camera to capture one or more initial images of a subject from a first pose of the camera; compute a guidance map in accordance with the one or more initial images to identify one or more next poses; control the camera to capture one or more additional images from at least one of the one or more next poses; update the guidance map in accordance with the one or more additional images; and output the images captured by the camera to generate a three-dimensional model.
