Thomas A Chmielewski Jr, Richard J Tarzaiski: Apparatus and method for determining a dimension of an object. General Electric Company, William H Meise, May 29, 1990: US04929843 (55 worldwide citation)

The height of an object is determined by projecting a beam of light there across to form a light stripe. A camera views the object obliquely, and forms an image of the light stripe. As a result of the oblique view, the light stripe is imaged as a series of bright vertical lines on a horizontally-sca ...
