This is an imaging
system for capturing “light in flight” or transient imaging, the prototype is
based on modulated light source and PMD camera. In this imaging modality, short
pulses of light are observed “in fligh” as they propagate through a scene. Transient
images are useful to help understand light propagation in complex environments
and to analyze light transport for research and many practical applications.
Two such examples are the reconstruction of occluded geometry, i.e.
"looking around a corner", or measuring surface reflectance.
