    Abstract

    A laser scanning system is proposed to enable the measurement of dimensions of steel plates used in shipbuilding with the objective being design verification and tolerance monitoring at the early stages of assembly. When the system is combined with a second scanning-viewing system it is demonstrated that depth measurements can be obtained giving the 3D shape of the plate or structure. The precision of the two configurations is discussed and evaluated.
