Global Statistics Representing 3D Reconstruction Technology Market Scenario
3D reconstruction is the process of capturing and generating a computer model that replicates the shape and appearance of real objects by either active or passive methods. The active method uses the mechanical or radiometric method while the passive method uses sensors to estimate the radiance released by the surface of an object to infer its 3D modal. This technology is commonplace in computer vision and healthcare applications such as electron microscopy or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and serial sections generated by Computed Tomography (CT). 3D reconstruction technology also finds application in video surveillance, video simulation and mapping.
