3d Linear Laser Scanner

This project uses a webcam and a line laser to triangulate depth information. The idea is that if the laser and the camera are at an angle, the closer an object is, the more shifted the laser line will be. From that you can calculate depth. It scans the object by calculating the depth of a vertical slice, and rotates the laser to the next position, and repeats. The eventual goal is to create a depth map in front of a robot in realtime.
