Abstract:

A photogrammetric technique based on the use of a 16 mm movie camera has been developed to determine three-dimensional information in rapid sequence at intervals of 0,008 second on the position and the orientation of a moving vehicle. Six targets, the relative position of which had been precisely determined, were rigidly mounted on the car and served to orient the vehicle with regard to the projecting bundle of rays reconstructed from individual photographs.
