This paper describes a system which enables fast 3-dimensional measurementof a human head by means of a slit ray projection method. The system developed here consists of a laser slit ray projector, two CCD TV cameras, a real-time video signal processor and a 32-bit computer. Due to the employment of this real-time video signal processor and a fast data-processing technique using a reference table, a 3-dimensional measurement of the human head can be Accomplished in 4.3 seconds, and all the image data are converted to 3-dimensional data in one second. Experimental data reveal the applicability of our system.
