Paper Abstract

Kern SPACE (System for Positioning and Automated Coordinate Evaluation) is a non-contact 3-D measuring system which utilizes high precision motor-driven theodolites with integrated CCD cameras for image acquisition. The system applies image processing techniques to accurately determine the image coordinates of a predefined target to a subpixel accuracy, the image coordinates are then converted to angular values to adjust theodolite angular readings. A transputer network is an ideal means to implement the current image processing software in a parallel processing mode, thus high-speed surface contouring and automated target tracking using a theodolite-based measuring system will become reality.
