In-situ calibration of structured light scanners in underwater environments is time-consuming and complicated. This paper presents
a self-calibrating line laser scanning system, which enables the creation of dense 3D models with a single fixed camera and a freely
moving hand-held cross line laser projector. The proposed approach exploits geometric constraints, such as coplanarities, to recover the
depth information and is applicable without any prior knowledge of the position and orientation of the laser projector. By employing an
off-the-shelf underwater camera and a waterproof housing with high power line lasers an affordable 3D scanning solution can be built.
In experiments the performance of the proposed technique is studied and compared with 3D reconstruction using explicit calibration.
We demonstrate that the scanning system can be applied to above-the-water as well as underwater scenes.
