abiss and metricam
developed by Dr
Derek Pilgrim at the University of Plymouth, UK, to
facilitate the acquisition and measurement of images
of the seabed, and natural and man-made objects lying
on the seabed. Particularly, it addresses the major problem
associated with the analysis of ROV photographs of the
seabed: varying perspective caused by unknown angle of
view, unknown camera altitude and, generally, unknown
comprises a structured lighting system (diode laser array)
and a software package,
Imager, to analyse the seabed
IN the ISS system the array is built into the camera
housing (designed at QinetiQ Bincleaves), and includes
a sixth laser so that the system may be used for imaging
ships, oil rigs etc.

AT the heart of the new MetriCam
system is an entirely new software program, MetriCamsoft
, which is able to perform all of the tasks of which the earlier Abiss system was capable but with a number of significant improvements

A modified version of Abiss incorporatingsize="2
Bincleaves. The array of image spots enables the scaling
and measurement of certain non-flat surfaces, namely cylinders,
spheres and cones.

THE development of
Abiss-MetriCam generated a number of research projects,
both academic and commercial, and resulted in the publication
of several papers, articles, reports, invited lectures and
