Paper Abstract

We present a method for automatically determining scan image overlap regions and computing image registration for relatively featureless free-form manufactured objects like propeller blades. The method is applicable when the design of the manufactured object exists as a NURBS surface. Incorporated in a comprehensive propeller inspection program, the method performs in an industrial propeller-manufacturing environment without operator involvement.
