Paper Abstract

The Holometrics 3-D vision system is an active laser ranging sensor capable of high frarne-rate mapping of the 3-D metric properties of a scene contained within the sensor field-of--view (FOV). The high resolution ranging function is accomplished with well known laser ranging techniques. The range data acquired by the system is manipulated by an image processor utilizing proprietary software. The algorithmic operations extract 3-D shape data on scene objects and are insensitive to object rotation, orientation or partial obscuration. The sensor acquisition of the 3-D data is independent of ambient lighting conditions or visual contrast between object and background. The elapsed time from scene scan to processor output is less than three seconds. The system output data is used to support a wide range of automated manufacturing, inspection, robotic, navigation, bin-picking, assembly, ordnance guidance, etc. applications. A block diagram of the Holometrics 3-D Vision System is provided in Figure 1.
