ANALOG TO HYBRID STEREOPLOTTER

HYBRID STEREORESTITUTION SYSTEMS SEEM TO FIT BETWEEN CONVENTIONAL ANALOG AND MODERN DIGITAL OR ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTERS. WITH THE CURRENT TECHNOLOGICAL TREND TOWARDS ON-LINE USE OF COMPUTERS AND AUTOMATION, DIGITIZATION OF STEREOMODEL DATA, ITS PROCESSING AND OUTPUT IN REAL-TIME CAN ADVANTAGEOUSLY BE PUT UNDER COMPLETE COMPUTER, I.E., SOFTWARE, CONTROL. BESIDES THE DESIGN OF COMPLETELY NEW HYBRID SYSTEMS, THE AUTHORS ARE IN FAVOR OF PROPAGATING MODIFICATION AND UPGRADING OF EXISTING ANALOG PLOTTERS TO HYBRID SYSTEMS. REASONS FOR THIS ARE THE GENERAL AVAILABILITY OF ANALOG EQUIPMENT, THE IMPROVEMENT OF AN INSTRUMENT'S OVERALL PERFORMANCE, CONSIDERATION OF DETERMINISTIC ERRORS OR DISTURBANCES, SIMPLIFICATION OF ORIENTATION PROCEDURES, AND RESTITUTION OF NON-CONVENTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS. SEVERAL DEVELOPMENT STAGES OF A RESEARCH PROJECT CARRIED OUT AT THE AUTHORS' DEPARTMENT ARE DESCRIBED, VIZ., ON-LINE DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM, ON-LINE CONTROL OF AN XY-PLOTTER, ON-LINE PERIPHERAL BULK STORAGE, REAL-TIME FEEDBACK STEREORESTITUTION SYSTEM, AND TIME-SHARED CONTROL OF SEVERAL STEREOPLOTTERS. REAL-TIME CONTROL OF FIVE BASE COMPONENTS IN A UNIVERSAL STEREOPLOTTER IS PROPOSED.
