In recent times a great deal of interest has been shown, amongst the computer vision and robotics research community, in the acquisition of range data for supporting scene analysis leading to remote (noncontact) determination of configurations and space filling extents of three-dimensional object assemblages. This paper surveys a variety of approaches to generalized range finding and presents a perspective on their applicability and shortcomings in the context of computer vision studies.
