The invention is a method and apparatus for automatic mensuration of three-dimensional surfaces. The surface is sensed via non-contact optical triangulation means and the optically produced image measured by electronic means. The electronic measurements are encoded as binary data and passed to a dig ...

David A Addleman, Lloyd A Addleman: Surface mensuration sensor. Cyberware Laboratory, Paul B Fihe, April 12, 1988: US04737032 (161 worldwide citation)

The invention is an apparatus having an improved arrangement of sensing and illumination elements for high speed, non-contact, three-dimensional mensuration of a surface. The surface is illuminated by a single plane of light producing a contour line. The line is viewed from two or more vantage point ...
