The vision-based coordinate measurement system, developed at the National Research Council Canada, is a multicamera passive system that combines the principles of stereo vision, photogrammetry, knowledge-based techniques, and an object-oriented design methodology to provide precise coordinate and dimension measurements of parts for applications such as dimensional inspection, positioning and tracking of objects, and reverse engineering. For a vision system to be considered for such applications, its performance and design parameters must be well understood. A description of the system, the techniques employed for calibration, a performance evaluation procedure, an accuracy analysis, and test results are presented.
