The accuracy of surface recovery was assessed as an r.m.s. error of better than ?0.1 mm on a test object. Results showing recovered 3D models of live pigs have been presented. The imaging system has been used to collect shape data for 32 pigs weekly during a 14 week growth trial </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
