Computer Vision Based, Non-Contacting Deformation And Shape Measurements: A Revolution In Progress, Michael A. Sutton
Journal of the South Carolina Academy of Science
The rapid expansion of computer technology in the past thirty years has impacted society in innumerable ways. Of interest for this discussion is the breath-taking change in measurement sciences that has occurred as the digital age dawned and has now become part of our daily lives. In particular, the effect on image-based, non-contacting measurements will be described and the continuing revolutionary impact that the resulting technology has engendered will be reviewed. Additionally, the unprecedented expansion of capabilities will be highlighted by presenting a set of illustrative example studies.
