Automation is common in many industries. Some tasks, such as object measurement, can easily be automated. The equipment required to perform automated measurements may be cost prohibitive. The cost of automated measurement equipment may prevent widespread deployment in automated point of sale kiosks or product inspection applications. This thesis focuses on the development of an optical measurement device. The optical measurement device is inexpensive relative to existing systems currently available on the market. The optical measurement device consists of an image sensor, a microcontroller, and several laser line projectors. The hardware design and configuration of the proposed device will be discussed along with the algorithms used to process the captured images and perform measurements. The conclusion will include a discussion of the performance of the optical measurement device.
