Structured light (SL) sensing is a well-established method of range acquisition for computer vision. We provide thorough discussions of design issues, calibration methodologies, and implementation schemes for SL sensors. The challenges for SL sensor development are described and a range of approaches are surveyed. A novel SL sensor, PRIME, the PRofile Imaging ModulE recently has been developed and is used as a design example in the detailed discussions.
