Title 3D Imaging Systems for Manufacturing, Construction, and Mobility.

Abstract The National Defense Center of Excellence for Industrial Metrology and 3D Imaging (COEIM3DI) is conducting research to enable the next generation of manufacturing-centric human/instrument/machine interactions. The generalized goal of the COE-IM3DI research is to facilitate the transition of 3D imaging technology from one requiring highly skilled/specialized technicians to a ubiquitous measurement capability available in real-time on the shop floor. This long-term effort requires a detailed examination of the current state-of-the-art in 3D imaging and projected technology development trends over the next ten years. In 2004, NIST produced a report (1) on the then state-of-the-art of the 3D Imaging field with a particular focus on hardware requirements for applications in manufacturing, autonomous vehicle mobility, and construction. This report will extend that initial work (principally with respect to software) and provide an update that will support the needs of the COE-IM3DT research program.
