Abstract

This paper presents a computer controlled stereoscopic vision system that will profile the contour and shape of the bottom of the human foot in its natural weight bearing position. The design will have no moving parts and will be restricted to an error of no more than {dollar}\pm{dollar}1 mm; Stereoscopic vision was chosen as the solution to profiling mainly because its use for this purpose is well documented. It is used in many fields that require range resolution. Mechanical engineers have used it in the development of robot vision for years and their applications range from control systems for robot welding to the determination of metal fatigue in aircraft (2). Radar engineers have used it since the early 1940's to determine the range of incoming flying objects (1). Many other fields have used it for even more far reaching purposes. Our use is another in that long list.
