ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of Ford engineers to use 3D mapping to better analyze rear axle parts of F-Series pickups during assembly. Ford's photogrammetric pattern reader is compared to Google Earth which uses three-dimensional imaging to map the world. The system's line scan cameras and infrared lights are used to turn a series of two-dimensional image slices into a single three-dimensional image for analysis.
