Paper Abstract

The well-known phase-shifting approach for three-dimensional surface measurement uses multiple fringe patterns along with the phase-shifting algorithm to obtain 3-D profiles with high accuracy though this approach is not applicable for dynamic object measurement techniques such as time-averaged holography and in cases when only a single interference fringe pattern is available. In this case the fringe tracing method can be used that is based on localization of centers of interference fringes. We propose a technique for the reconstruction of the contour map from fringe patterns which comprises standard image processing techniques and a scheme for reconstruction of the map of continuous curves from the binary matrix of pixels representing fringe centers. The approach of image division into grid cells is taken and such problems as derivation of approximate line equations in each cell using Hough transformation, grouping contacting cells into curves and interpolation between curves with fractures are solved. The functionality of this approach is demonstrated for a demanding optical image containing fractures and noise.
