Paper Abstract

This paper is a description of several vision applications utilizing close-range photogrammetric solutions to determine the positions of various components on a nuclear reactor face. The 3D position determination generated by the vision system is used to engage automated tools with the components of the nuclear reactor during a retubing retrofit of the reactor. A discussion of the vision algorithms and their performance in the system is presented. Specific challenges related to the use of a vision system in this environment will also be discussed.
