W5: Vision Metrology and Uncertainty Assessment

Workshop Overview

This is an interdisciplinary workshop which aims at bringing together people of different communities and disciplines involved in vision metrology and uncertainty assessment. We focus on geometrical 2D, 3D, and 4D measurements acquired with passive or active sensors like cameras, depth sensors, or laser scanners. Objects to be measured may significantly differ in their size, reaching from a few micrometers (e.g., crystals or parts of electronic components) up to several tens of meters (e.g., airplanes or wind turbines) as well as in their optical surface properties (e.g. matt, gloss, translucent, transparent). People are invited to contribute new datasets, to present innovative methodological advancements, and to share the latest results and findings of both fundamental and application-oriented work.

Workshop Theme

  • Geometrical 2D, 3D, and 4D measurements
  • Consideration and assessment of uncertainty
  • Benchmarking with regard to vision metrology
  • Modeling and calibration of vision sensors and lenses
  • Performance evaluation of active and passive sensor systems
  • Machine learning for vision metrology
  • Metrology and uncertainty in machine vision applications
  • Close-range photogrammetry
  • Geometrical object inspection
  • Sensor and object pose determination
  • Improving and assessing application performance, e.g.:
    • Vision metrology for objects/scenes with complex optical material appearance
    • Machine vision systems
    • Vision-guided industrial robots
    • Industrial applications across a range of scales
