Abstract
We present an original method that enables real time automatic dimensional control of defects on metallic objects. The method is based on the theoretical and experimental study of light reflection mechanisms that can be seen as a function of the surface roughness and of the light source size. We show that it is possible to reconstruct the profile of an object from a single gray level image. An industrial application enables us to validate our results. Finally, an error computation fixes the limits of our method and enables us to better understand illumination problems.
