Abstract: We describe an experimental procedure for the reconstruction of the geometrical parameters of a reflecting surface. The method is based on the projection of a luminous pattern constituted by colored points. The successive chromatic selection reduces the complexity of the acquired image. We show that the colors of the points comprising the pattern are modified by the combined effect of the CCD camera and the projection system. In some situations, the chromatic components of the pattern points can generate ambiguity. Consequently, the number of colors to be projected and their chromatic separation must be studied to enable the simultaneous projection of an elevated number of points and colors.
