Flexible Shape Measurement System for Chemical Plant Using Magnetic Sensors

Kumiko Yoshida, Kikuhito Kawasue

Abstract

We propose a flexible computer vision system using magnetic sensors. The system enables a flexible free scanning of a CCD camera and a laser slit using 3D magnetic sensors. Many numbers of views of each model from different angles can be taken on measuring the configuration between a CCD camera and a laser slit projector simultaneously. The information of different views is combined to reconstruct the 3D object on a computer display. In this paper, the application for pipe measurement is introduced. Experimental results show the feasibility of our system.
