How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The goal of this project is to create methods that can automatically generate high-quality robotic inspection paths. An additional focus is to create general methods that apply to many measurement techniques or inspection problems.
Recently, we developed an accurate fringe pattern projection based three-dimensional scanning technique which we will combine with a thermal camera to perform active 3D thermography. The entire setup will be mounted onto an industrial KUKA robot such that the object under test can be viewed and evaluated from different directions.
In this research multi-camera systems are developed based on time-of-flight sensors, used to capture the geometric shape of the test object. The measurement setup and methodology we propose includes an industrial KUKA KR-16W robot which makes it possible to scan the object from multiple viewpoints and add time as an extra 4th dimension during the passive thermography experiments. This automated system will help compensating the influence of directional emissivity.
