WG I/5: New 3D Sensors for Metrology and Industrial Vision

Our Mission

ISPRS Working group I/5 aims to promote the developments and investigations on modern active sensing techniques including 3D sensor and system development, analysis of measuring systems, sensor calibration, quality analysis, and metrology and industrial applications of 3D sensors.

To this purpose, the WG distributes sample data of modern 3D sensors. In addition, the WG will establish connections with sister communities/conference with focus on machine vision, such as CVPR, WACV, Machine Vision Applications etc.

Finally, the WG will contribute to SPEC3D, ISPRS Midterm-Symposium 2018, Geospatial week 2019, and ISPRS congress 2020.
