This project consists of a prototype of a stereo camera rig where you can mount two DSLR cameras, and a multithreaded software application, written in C++, that can move the cameras, change camera settings and take pictures. The resulting 3D-images can be viewed with a 2-view autostereoscopic display. Camera position is controlled by a step engine which is controlled by a PIC microcontroller. All communication with the PIC and the computer is made over USB. The camera shutters are synchronized so it is possible to take pictures of moving objects at a distance of 2.5 m or more. The results shows that there are several things to do before the prototype can be considered a product ready for the market, most of all the camera callback functionality.
