The aim of this project has been to design, to implement and to characterize a system for the 3D measurement of eccentricity of pipes.

This system was originally based on four laser slits, suitable oriented with respect to the pipe to acquire the external and the internal semi-profiles. In order to develop a compact version of the instrument, we studied a new optical layout, which halves the number of the cameras.
