Time-of-Flight Revolution

Time-of-flight (ToF) cameras are fast becoming the method of choice for depth sensing in a wide range of applications. Several low cost and compact ToF systems are available as commodity devices, including the Microsoft Kinect and the Intel SoftKinectic sensors. In addition to depth recovery, ToF cameras are also being re-purposed for recovering a variety of scene information, such as reflectance properties and intra-scene light transport. This talk will present some of the recent advances made in the field of ToF imaging, including our work on dealing with the problem of multipath interference in ToF sensors. I will conclude the talk with future outlook on the capabilities of ToF sensor hardware and some open problems.
