Paper Abstract

This paper outlines the development of a 3-D vision system based upon the synchronized scanning principle. The concept uses triangulation and through the use of a novel scanning mechanism, a large field of view is achieved while maintaining resolution. The design of the prototype camera is described. The optical design is based on the requirements set by the first application, that of measuring marine propellers with diameters in the range of 5 metres. The benefits of using this technology over current propeller measuring practices will be discussed. Furthermore the application of the 3-D camera in the measurement of museum artifacts is also demonstrated and results shown.
