We present a novel 3D scanning system combining stereo and active illumination based on phase-shift for robust and accurate scene reconstruction. Stereo overcomes the traditional phase discontinuity problem and allows for the reconstruction of complex scenes containing multiple objects. Due to the sequential recording of three patterns, motion will introduce artifacts in the reconstruction. We develop a closed-form expression for the motion error in order to apply motion compensation on a pixel level. The resulting scanning system can capture accurate depth maps of complex dynamic scenes at 17 fps and can cope with both rigid and deformable objects.
