Abstract
In this study we use genetic algorithms to generate test surfaces for a proposed structured light 3D vision system in order to estimate the worst case behavior of error tolerances. The object software evaluates surface profiles for measuring volumes of small objects attached on surfaces that are highly constrained while somewhat arbitrarily shaped. The test system tries to find, by using genetic algorithm search, the shape that results the highest relative error of volume. The parameters of the object system to be optimized include laser angle, image size, object step size, and the number of scan directions. The preliminary results seem to indicate that a genetic algorithm based approach is a beneficial aid in optical system design.
