Polar I Defect and Depth Detection
Our advanced imaging algorithm manipulates angles of polarization to produce x, y and z surface normals for ultra high resolution 2D images and 3D point clouds.
When there is a crack, bulge, depression in a homogenous surface, it reflects the polarized light differently than its surroundings. Surface defects in metal/alloy/ceramic or painted surfaces need to be detected from a distance and under diverse lighting conditions. By acquiring polarimetric images of the surface for different angles of polarization and detect defects in polarimetric domain.
Degree and angle of polarization & surface normals will register an abrupt change in case of surface defects.
