Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this work is to investigate the behavior of the recently released by Microsoft company the Kinect sensor, which contains the properties that go beyond ordinary cameras. Normally, in order to create a 3D reconstruction of the scene two cameras are required. Whereas, the Kinect device, due to the properties of the Infrared projector and sensor allows to create the same type of the reconstruction using only one device. However, the depth images, which are generated by the Infrared laser projector and monochrome sensor in Kinect can contain undefined values. Therefore, in addition to other investigations this project contains an idea how to improve the quality of the depth images. However, the base aim of this work is to perform a reconstruction of the scene based on the color images using pair of Kinects which will be compared with the results generated by using depth information from one Kinect. In addition, the report contains the information how to check that all the performed calculations were done correctly. All  the algorithms which were used in the project as well as the achieved results will be described and discussed in the separate chapters in the current report.
