Paper Abstract

Recent results obtained from a stereoscopic-vision system incorporating line-scan sensors are described. The research forms a part of the continuing program of work in both human- and machine-vision systems carried out a Nottingham Polytechnic. Line-scan sensors have been used extensively in shop-floor environments, for applications as diverse as pattern matching in the textile industry to quality inspection of printed circuit boards. However, all of this work has involved the use of a single line-scan device in a two-dimensional role. It is the author's intention to show that a logical progression of this previous research is to construct a stereoscopic sensor using line-scan devices and so enable three-dimensional coordinate information to be obtained from a moving object volume.
