Paper Abstract

This paper describes a flexible 3D sensor developed by British Aerospace as part of a collaborative project, LAIRD (IED 1551), which aims to meet the inspection needs of high technology manufacturing. By combining the principles of computer vision and robotics it has been possible to produce a visual inspection system where both the cameras and object can be automatically orientated to suit specific applications. A method for calibrating such a system is detailed as is a strategy for determining how best to orientate the cameras and the object.
