Paper Abstract

Though the commercial landscape of industrial metrology has changed significantly in recent years, the strengths and advantages of digital photogrammetry, or vision metrology (VM), ensure its role as a highly competitive, three-dimensional coordinate measurement tool. Used predominantly for inspection and reverse engineering, today it is increasingly utilized for building within the manufacturing process. This paper presents an overview of innovation and the current status of VM in industry and engineering. A brief description of the state-of-the-art is followed by summaries of five unique applications that illustrate the basic types of available VM systems. In concluding remarks, selected emerging trends are discussed.
