Paper Abstract

The specification and design of structured light triangulation systems are discussed. Custom optical systems for optimal illumination and signal detection are described. In addition to general concepts that are applicable to all triangulation sensors, several special cases are examined. In particular, the effects of surface roughness on measurement accuracy and the problems of long range triangulation are discussed.
