This paper presents a novel scanning-path determination method to choose a next best view, using a combination of the shape-from-silhouette and convex-hull methods to ensure the accuracy and integrity of measured object surface data. A backlight system is used to illuminate the scene to acquire silhouettes from different viewpoints, from which an approximate 3-D surface model can be deduced. The scanning path is determined according to the convex hull of the approximate model so as to specify the movement of a three-axis motion table to achieve automatic measurement. With a mathematical model of a sensor equipped with a color CCD and a line-structured laser, 3-D color data of the object can be obtained integrally and accurately.
