  abstract  = {This paper proposes a novel stereo vision technique
for top view book scanners which provide us with dense 3d point
clouds of page surfaces. This is a precondition to dewarp bound
volumes independent of 2d information on the page. Our method is
based on algorithms, which normally require the projection of pattern
sequences with structured light. We use image sequences of the
moving stripe lighting of the top view scanner instead of an additional
light projection. Thus the stereo vision setup is simplified without
losing measurement accuracy. Furthermore we improve a surface
model dewarping method through introducing a difference vector
based on real measurements. Although our proposed method is hardly
expensive neither in calculation time nor in hardware requirements
we present good dewarping results even for difficult examples.},
