Paper Abstract

LIDS Laser Image Detection System has been developed in New Zealand at the DSIR as a tool to investigate typical industry problems. Laser based imaging has several demonstrated advantages over conventional camera systems these include independence of ambient lighting conditions translation zoom and resolution control direct measurement of range polarisation and colour selectivity. Limitations of laser imaging such as operating range speed and safety are reviewed and solutions outlined. The integration of laser imaging with machine vision can result in a reduction in the processing required for some image processing applications and allows the vision system more control and versatility over the input image data.
