Metrology is defined by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) as "the science of measurement, embracing both experimental and theoretical determinations at any level of uncertainty in any field of science and technology". Within various project with private companies, we applied precise and reliable measurements - based on close-range photogrammetry or triangulation laser scanning - for monitoring, manufacturing, quality control, inspection and product development. In particular, our aim is to deliver innovative 3D inspection and monitoring solutions, based on photogrammetric methods, for
Optical metrology methods are exploited to integrate their main functionalities (centroid measurement, photogrammetric network design, bundle adjustment, precision assessment, etc.) into a pipeline for 3D inspection and quality control. Metrological standards (e.g. VDI/VDE guidelines) are also followed.
