Paper Abstract

12 The demand to provide greater flexibility in surface- geometry measurement of free-form objects, has led to range sensors which are permitted continuous free motion. However, most devices employ mechanical linkages instrumented with position sensors, or optical or magnetic tracking sensors to determine the position and orientation of the moving range- sensor head. These additional sensors limit the working volume, impede the free movement of the range sensor, or restrict the material allowed in the work environment. This paper presents a method of surface-geometry measurement by a laser-camera range sensor head, which is permitted continuous motion in space, without the need to track its position and orientation by additional sensors.
