MetroFlex - Need for flexible CT metrology solutions

In this SBO-project, we propose a radical paradigm shift by breaking with the traditional X-ray 3D metrology workflow through developing a new framework for 3D metrology that addresses the above mentioned problems.

Our approach starts from an accurate forward CAD-model that will enable to optimize the scanning geometry in order to achieve maximal accuracy and precision given specific limitations for the acquisition parameters (such as spatial or time constraints).

In the future, this technology would enable  flexible ‘robotic CT systems’. Simultaneously, 3D metrology strategies will be developed that only require a set of 2D projection data thereby avoiding 3D reconstruction.

For both strategies (and combinations thereof) the uncertainty of the measurement will be modelled and verified by validation experiments.
