Reducing Interference in 3D Imaging
This technique is a hardware or firmware-implementable solution targeted to commercial range imaging technologies. The technique produces an adjustable depth window so that imaging occurs only within a pre-selected region and the imaging sensor is able to ignore signals from outside this window. This process occurs at the image acquisition level, meaning the range camera simply doesn’t “see” objects outside the selected window. The solution is designed to minimise errors resulting from background interference, multi-path effects, scattering and reflections. The technique also reduces image processing requirements by simplifying the measured scene.
The technique is valuable to the following range imaging applications:
- Gesture control for consumer electronics and gaming devices, when environmental factors such as reflections introduce measurement and detection errors.
- Interactive advertising, for isolating the gestures of targets within a pre-determined scene.
- Improves the accuracy of image captures by removing errors and distortions caused by multi-path and scattering interference.
- Decreases likelihood of ambiguous measurements.
- Reduces post-processing requirements by simplifying the measured scene.

Our Easy Access IP portfolio provides companies with non-exclusive access to our technologies, largely for free. Royalties will only start once the use of the idea or technology has generated significant value for your company.
Express Licensing makes negotiating license terms with WaikatoLink simple and straightforward. We will provide standard licensing terms with no upfront fees and an indication of expected royalty rate ranges, all tailored to avoiding lengthy and costly legal discussions. Only a small number of areas within the license will be negotiated, such as field, territory, exclusivity and royalty rate.
Companies often find that a barrier to accessing University-generated IP is the upfront hard work that is needed in working through deal terms, even before they can assess the worth of the IP in their business. Our Try Before You Buy portfolio utilises a simple agreement that allows a company to trial an idea or technology for a fixed period of time at no charge. This will enable full assessment of whether it will work as expected, without any requirement to discuss deal terms.
