Towards uncertainty evaluation with optical coordinate metrology
Learn more about
Coordinate metrology is mainly applied to ensure production quality. Prof. Richard Leach introduces the different types of coordinate metrology and how they differentiate. In particular, the difference between traditional tactile (contact) technologies and new optical methods are discussed in detail. One of the key aspects in terms of verifying measurement accuracy is the use of standards and how measurement uncertainty comes into play. Here, Richard Leach will focus on how this is handled in relation to optical coordinate metrology. Also, an outlook on further developments in the field of calibration for coordinate measurement technology is given.
