Point Cloud With Arducam ToF Camera – for Raspberry Pi
About Point Cloud
A point cloud is a set of data points in space. The points may represent a 3D shape or object. Each point position has its set of Cartesian coordinates (X, Y, Z). Point clouds are generally produced by 3D scanners or by photogrammetry software, which measure many points on the external surfaces of objects around them.
With the Point Cloud Library, you can quickly generate a real-time point cloud with Arducam ToF camera and your Raspberry Pi, and utilize it in various 3D processing software/algorithms.
