GPU based real-time quadrature transform method for 3-D surface measurement and visualization
In this article, we propose a massively parallel, real-time algorithm for the estimation of the dynamic phase map of a vibrating object. The algorithm implements a Fourier-based quadrature transform and temporal phase unwrapping technique. CUDA, a graphic processing unit programming architecture was used to implement the algorithm. It was tested on a fringe pattern sequence using three devices with different capabilities, achieving a processing rate greater than 1600 frames per second (fps).
