In this paper we present a different point of view of phase measurements performed in interferometry, image processing and intelligent vision using Wavelet Transform. In standard and white-light interferometry, the phase function is retrieved by using phase-shifting, Fourier-Transform, cosinus-inversion and other known algorithms. Our novel technique presented here is faster, robust and shows excellent accuracy in phase determinations. Finally, in our second application, fringes are no more generate by some light interaction but result from the observation of adapted strip set patterns directly printed on the target of interest. The moving target is simply observed by a conventional vision system and usual phase computation algorithms are adapted to an image processing by wavelet transform, in order to sense target position and displacements with a high accuracy. In general, we have determined that wavelet transform presents properties of robustness, relative speed of calculus and very high accuracy in phase computations.
