A feature article titled “data-driven intelligent 3D surface measurement in smart manufacturing: review and outlook” has been published in Machines recently. The paper was co-authored by Yuhang Yang, Zhiqiao Dong, Yuquan Meng and Chenhui Shao.
This paper reviewed and summarized existing research in interpolation and sampling design techniques in various manufacturing scenarios, which can potentially enable intelligent and cost effective surface measurement for better decision-making. Research gaps and future research directions were also identified to provide guidelines to industrial practitioners and researchers. See the full paper here (PDF file).
