The tunnel inspection system explained

Back in October 2010 I posted about a tunnel inspection system, “Bore inspection by machine vision – supersized!” and asked Andy Wilson if he could investigate further.

Well I’m delighted to say that he took me up on my request and the latest Vision Systems Design has an in-depth look at this system. Under the heading, “Riding the Rails,” Andy delves into the specifics of the system – 60 lasers, five 1 Mp cameras and four line scan cameras, bundled together to create a 3D map of tunnel walls.

It’s a great article that answers all my questions, and I hope you enjoy it too. Thanks Andy!
