The development of a multiple-sensor coordinate measuring system
(CMM) is introduced and its applications to automated part localization
and rapid surface digitization are experimentally demonstrated. The
developed multiple-sensor CMM is characterized by an integrated use of a
high-precision CMM equipped with a motorized touch probe, and a 3D
active vision system, advanced computational software, and the
associated electronics. The 3D active vision system is capable of
digitizing surface coordinates of objects having multiple features; thus
intelligent feature recognition algorithms can be applied to extract the
global surface information of the object. The obtained information can
be subsequently used to automatically guide the touch probe for rapid
coordinate data acquisition and to strategically control the coordinate
measuring machine for high precision sampling of critical surface area.
In this paper, the information automation for the multiple-sensor
integrated system is demonstrated in part localization
