    ABSTRACT: An innovative technique for measuring both the shape, the displacement, the strain and the temperature fields at the surface of an object using a single stereovision sensor is proposed. The sensor is based on two off-the-shelf low-cost high-resolution uncooled CCD cameras. To allow both dimensional and thermal measurements, the sensor operates in the visible and near infrared (NIR) spectral band (0.7–1.1 μm), and a radiometric and geometric calibration of the sensor is required. This technique leads to a low-cost camera-based simplified instrumentation that gives simultaneously dimensional/kinematical and thermal field measurements.

    ABSTRACT: An ideal thermographic camera could be defined as an uncooled system with high spatial and thermal resolutions featuring a video frame rate, and a short calibration process. In this paper a measurement system based on Silicon FPA operating in the Near Infrared spectral band (0.7 - 1.1 µm) is proposed. This system offers an excellent spatial resolution, a low cost and compactness. With a specific radiometric model, this system can accurately measure temperatures, in a broad temperature range, from 400 up to 1000°C. A comparison with two commercial infrared cameras is performed between 400 and 700°C.

    ABSTRACT: Le Centre de Recherche sur les Outillages, les Matériaux et les Procédés (CROMeP) veut obtenir des cartes de températures précises, sur des moules métalliques entre 400 et 1000°C. Plusieurs équipes ont montré l'intérêt d'utiliser des caméras silicium dans ce contexte. Nous nous distinguons de leurs travaux par l'approche adoptée pour modéliser le système. Nous proposons un nouveau modèle, plus précis et paramétré par un unique jeu de coefficients indépendant du temps d'intégration. Il permet d'obtenir une procédure d'étalonnage courte et précise, ainsi qu'un système dont la dynamique est contrôlable en ligne. Nous étudions d'autre part différents phénomènes perturbant la mesure, afin de l'améliorer, et d'évaluer sa précision. Ces caractérisations sont en partie effectuées au laboratoire de Conception d'Imageurs Matriciels Intégrés (CIMI). Enfin nous positionnons les caméras CCD et CMOS par rapport aux systèmes de thermographie infrarouges, et présentons une application de mesures couplées dimensionnelles/thermiques, basée sur un unique capteur de stéréovision silicium.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a thermal measurement system based on a Silicon image sensor camera operating in the Near Infrared spectral band (0.7-1.1 μm). The goal of the study is to develop a low-cost imaging system which provides an accurate measurement of temperature. A radiometric model is proposed to characterize the camera response by using physical parameters considering the specific spectral band used. After a calibration procedure of the model, measurements of black body temperatures ranging from 300 to 1000°C has been performed. The Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) is lower than +/- 0.18°C at a black body temperature of 600°C. Accurate measurements are provided over the whole temperature range by introducing an automatic exposure time control. The exposure time is adjusted for each frame along the evolution of temperature in order to optimize the temperature sensitivity and the signal-to-noise ratio. The paper also describes the conversion process of the apparent black body temperature to the real temperature of the observed object using its emissivity and surface geometry. The overall method is depicted and the influence of each parameter is analyzed by computing the resulting temperature uncertainty. Finally, preliminary experimental results are presented for monitoring real temperature of moulds in a Super Forming Process (SPF).
