Paper Abstract

A new noncontact optical preview sensing technique, developed at Georgia Tech, for possible application to a robotic seam tracking system is presented in this paper. This technique uses a structured laser illumination source, SELFOC Lens Array (SLA) coupled to fiberoptic array and phototransistor (photodetector) array. The hardware and software components, and the experimental results are described in this paper.

The manuscript is divided into five chapters as indicated below. Chapter I is the introduction, Chapter II describes the hardware while Chapter III explains the experimental procedures. The development of specialized data processing software is presented in Chapter IV. Finally, Chapter V discusses the results and conclusions.
