Developing a Photogrammetry Based System for Measuring As Assembled Suspension Geometry


Developing a Photogrammetry Based System for Measuring As Assembled Suspension Geometry
2006 | Andre D. Powell, Colorado State University, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Applications: All and Industrial Measurement

A measurement system based on photogrammetry was developed and used to measure the “as assembled” geometry of a double wishbone suspension. A standard methodology for photographing the suspension and special targets were developed to use with commercial photogrammetry software (PhotoModeler Pro 5). Several types of targets were developed these included targets to identify the center of rotation of the linkages and the orientation of the wheel mounting surface.
