Measuring NIR Sources for Safe and Accurate 3D Sensing


The rapid adoption of 3D NIR sensing systems requires effective methods to measure the quality, performance, and safety of NIR emitters. In this article, Anne Corning of Radiant Vision Systems discusses the importance of NIR measurement in facial recognition technology, measurement challenges, and technologies that enable measurement efficiency (including imaging, wide-field-of-view optics, and structured light pattern evaluation for characterizing NIR dot patterns used in facial sensing).
