The Camera Measurement System (CMS) is a high-resolution vision system built in coorperation with Tebulo (www.tebulo.com). CMS can accurately measure the 3D coordinates of both small and large objects.
The CMS system uses a laser (number 2) to project a line (3) on an object (here: the tennis ball). It then makes a photo with its camera (1).
The CMS software then detects the laser light projection points and computes the exact coordinates of these points. Subsequently, this information is processed further into relevant data. For instance, in case of a tennis ball, CMS can measure its diameter.
Applications of the CMS system include :
